Reverend Cecil "Chip" Murray, holder of USC's John R. Tansey Chair in Christian Ethics and a senior fellow at the university's Center for Religion and Civic Culure, discussed the topic of "What Matters to Me and Why" on Sept. 7, 2011.

Rev. Murray also directs the Passing the Mantle program at USC, which trains up-and-coming black ministers in community development.

For 27 years, he headed one of Los Angeles' most visible churches, the First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church, which grew under his leadership from a small congregation of 250 to an 18,000-person church with multimillion-dollar community and economic development programs that brought jobs, housing and corporate investment into many south Los Angeles neighborhoods.

"What Matters to Me and Why" is a speakers' series that bridges the separation between intellectual life and personal and spiritual issues by having featured USC faculty and administrators spend about 20 minutes addressing the topic "What Matters to Me and Why," followed by an informal dialogue rounding out the hour.

The program is sponsored by the USC Office of Religious Life and the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics.
