To commemorate its Centennial, Candler is hosting two major events during the 2014-2015 academic year: A Fall Celebration that is commemorative and focuses on story, memory and celebration, and a Spring Academic Conference that emphasizes prophecy in the sense of speaking a word that challenges the world - and examines the 21st century's dire dilemmas and wondrous opportunities, providing a distinctive Candler vision of how to approach them.
Candler School of Theology at Emory University, founded in 1914, officially commemorates its 100th birthday during a two-day centennial celebration October 23-24. The Emory community is invited to participate. The two-day celebration is part of a yearlong commemoration designed to showcase Candler's contributions to theological education and to the church during the past 100 years and to engage students in conversation about the future of theological education. The commemoration features a series of events, performances and exhibits during the fall and spring semesters.

This issue focuses on endings and beginnings and the link between them: exploring the rituals at the end of life and the birth of congregations in the neighborhoods that surround us; stemming the tide of systemic injustice and forging new ministries; and celebrating Candler's beginnings as we honor its 100th anniversary.
