Congratulations to Joshua Lazard!
Lazard has been chosen as the C. Eric Lincoln Minister at Duke University’s Duke Chapel. The new position was created to honor the late C. Eric Lincoln who taught religion and culture at Duke University from 1976 to 1993. He was also a scholar, pastor, social activist, novelist and hymn-writer. Lincoln died in 2000.
The role of the Lincoln minister is primarily to engage students. The emphasis is on “racial reconciliation, artistic expression and outreach to students who have been historically underrepresented in the chapel’s ministries,” according to Duke Chapel.
