Candler School of Theology announces fall event schedule

The Candler School of Theology at Emory University has announced two special programs this fall for students and clergy alike.

Barbara Brown Taylor

The first features visiting professor and noted preacher Barbara Brown Taylor, who will speak at the Glenn Memorial Auditorium on September 26 at 7 p.m. The title of her presentation is “Learning to Walk in the Dark,” and will explore the formation of faith when the path ahead is unclear. Taylor is a much lauded author and has been named as one of the 10 best preachers in the U.S.


Becca Stevens

On November 1 Candler will hold its annual Women, Theology & Ministry Annual Women’s Forum. This year’s forum theme is “Living Out Love,” and will feature the Rev. Becca Stevens as the keynote speaker. Stevens is an Episcopal priest, author, and the founder of Magdelene and Thistle Farms, a ministry working with recovering prostitutes in Nashville, TN. The event will include lunch, conversation with Magdalene and Thistle Farms participants, and an additional session on women’s advocacy in Atlanta.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
