The J.W. White Lectureship Committee of First Congregational Church (UCC) Colorado Springs has sought for several years to schedule Joan Chittister, O.S.B., to deliver the annual endowed lecture that began in honor of former FCC lead minister Jim White upon his retirement. Her appearance was in cooperation with The Colorado College Paul Sheffer for Catholic Studies.

Her presentation, titled "God and the Evolutionary Mind: The God Who Beckons," focused on how to integrate one's spirituality with peace and justice issues.
