Event description: 
Andover Newton and Yale graduates played significant roles in 19th Century missions generally, but nowhere did the two institutions have more overlapping interests than Hawaii. In this bicentennial year of the Hawaii missions, we ask how we can celebrate the church in Hawaii’s accomplishments while also taking stock of the real harm missions caused.
In a lecture entitled “Making Sense of Missions: History and Ethics in the Hawaii Mission Bicentennial,” Professor Tisa Wenger will educate Andover Newton’s and Yale’s constituents while also preparing the way for a study tour for alumni/ae and friends to Hawaii the subsequent year in March 2020. 
March 29, 2019, the lecture will be held at 4:00 p.m. in New Haven, CT. On March 30, the lecture will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Hancock Church in Lexington, MA. Both lectures will be followed by receptions.
