Welcome to the Winter 2014 issue of Candler Connection, the magazine for alumni and friends of Candler School of Theology. This magazine is designed to foster community among the 7,500 Candler alumni around the world.
This issue focuses on endings and beginnings and the inextricable link between them. We explore 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 the 100th anniversary of its founding in 1914. May this issue bring you into a deeper understanding of the transformative and renewing spirit of endings and beginnings.
