When you think about the musical Seussical, a dark black stage isn’t exactly what pops you’re your mind, right? However, that was the scene that greeted me as I opened the door of the Benson Auditorium for one of the cast’s last rehearsals before opening night.
At this year’s Homecoming celebration, Trevecca Nazarene University will be welcoming Dr. H. Ray Dunning back to campus. The former professor of theology will be recognized for his accomplishments at Trevecca, as well as celebrate the 30th anniversary of his book Grace, Faith, and Holiness. On November 2, Dr. Dunning will participate in an Author Talk session sponsored by Trevecca’s Ray and C.R. Thrasher Archives, as well as a book signing. Dr. Tim Gaines, professor of religion in Trevecca’s Millard Reed School of Theology and Christian Ministry, will guide the conversation at the Author Talk event. We asked Gaines a few questions about the event and Dunning’s influence on the University.
