Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 27-28 — Attend the symposium "Called to Unite Knowledge and Vital Piety"

The state of Indiana has an unusually rich concentration of institutions of higher education that have been founded by persons and groups that saw themselves standing in the Wesleyan and Holiness movements and the Pietist heritage more generally. Learn why it matters to a secular Indiana today.

When: Friday evening March 27, all day Saturday March 28
Where: University of Indianapolis
McCleary Chapel in the Schwitzer Student Center

The event will explore the ways seven institutions of higher education in the state have carried out the Wesleyan aspiration to "unite the pair so long disjoined."

Various persons and groups associated with the Wesleyan and Holiness movements founded DePauw University, the University of Evansville, Taylor University, Huntington University, Anderson University, Indiana Wesleyan University and the University of Indianapolis. Participants in the symposium will begin to see the collective contribution these universities, founded by the heirs of John and Charles Wesley, have made to higher education in the state of Indiana over many decades.

Faculty and staff from the seven universities will participate in the symposium, but United Methodist clergy and laity in the state of Indiana are invited to attend. There will be sermons and presentations by two native Hoosier United Methodists, Beth Felker Jones (Wheaton College) and Paul Wesley Chilcote (Ashland University).

Questions about the symposium should be directed to Cindy Tyree (ctyree@uindy.edu) at 317-788-2106. A special discount will be offered for persons who register early for this event.
