Illinois Wesleyan University Chapel Hour to Present Dennis Groh

January 18, 2006  

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan's University Chapel Hour and Special Events and Services will present Dennis E. Groh, university chaplain and professor of humanities and archeology.  Groh will give a lecture titled, "Why the Good News is Sometimes Not Good," on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 11 a.m. in Evelyn Chapel (1301 N. Park St., Bloomington).

The service is free and open to the public.

In Christianity, "Good News" is a phrase that originally referred to the gospel, or the message of Jesus, in both English and Greek.  The phrase is commonly used by theologians to address the salvation that Jesus is said to provide.  In this context, the "Good News" speaks about the promise and hope of an eternal life that, according to Christian theology, is given as a gift by God out of grace and mercy.
