The Rev. Dr. Storey, who first visited Lakeside Chautauqua in 1993, is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke University Divinity School. In his former roles as Presiding Bishop of The Methodist Church of Southern Africa and President of the South African Council of Churches, he was prominently involved in the anti-apartheid struggle and the post-apartheid work of reconciliation.
In 1986, he preached in the darkest hours of black suffering in a South Africa torn apart by racial oppression. The Rev. Dr. Storey’s latest book, Protest at Midnight: Ministry to a Nation Torn Apart, chronicles his life as a youthful chaplain to Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, defying armed police entering his pulpit, heading the South African Council of Churches with Bishop Desmond Tutu, leading 25,000 marchers against Johannesburg’s secret police headquarters, and confronting Winnie Mandela’s wrongs.
For individuals traveling from out of town for this event, overnight accommodations can be made at the Fountain Inn. Rooms start at $109. To make a reservation, contact the Fountain Inn at (419) 798-4461, ext. 230 and mention the Rev. Dr. Peter Storey event.
On May 1, the Rev. Dr. Storey will also preach the morning message at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Worship Service at the Lakeside United Methodist Church.
