About the Loud Lectureship…
Lumberman, Au Sable mayor (president of Bay View near Petoskey), and licensed lay Methodist preacher, Henry Loud endowed the Loud Lectureship at Wesley in 1897. This was just one year after the Wesleyan Guild (later Wesley Foundation) incorporated. Hundreds of theologians, bishops, scholars, activists, and writers have spoken at the since that time on “the Evidences, the History, the Development, and the Reasonableness of the Christian Religion.”
In the early years, bishops, governors, congress members, senators, and ambassadors gave the lectures. Throughout the 20th century, Loud Lecturers have included William Jennings Bryan of Scopes “Monkey Trial” fame, Walter Rauschenbusch, known for the Social Gospel, non-violence scholar Gene Sharp of Harvard, and Black Liberation Theologian James Cone. Recent lecturers have included Matthew Fox, Shane Claiborne, John Bell, and James Lawson.
