"The Fierce Urgency to Follow Christ"
by Dr. Bernice A. King
The Wheaton College Office of Intercultural Engagement invites you to view the Keynote Speech by Dr. Bernice A. King entitled The Fierce Urgency to Follow Christ. Dr. King’s keynote address followed the awarding of the second annual Rodney K. Sisco Diversity Student’s Choice Award to Wheaton a faculty member, Dr. Nathan Cartagena and, a staff member, Mr. Daniel Watts, who work to “cultivate a grace-filled, Christ-centered academic community where all members are recognized, loved, and respected,” as articulated in Wheaton College’s Christ-Centered Diversity Commitment.
“It is significant and symbolic that Dr. Bernice A. King is the symposium’s inaugural speaker because as she is building on the work of her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., as we are building on the work of Rodney K. Sisco,” said Wheaton College Chief Intercultural Engagement Officer Dr. Sheila Caldwell. “Both were godly men who dedicated their lives to advancing the Christly traits of service, mercy, justice, and unity.”
