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.
During this sacred season, Candler students respond to the question, 'How has being at Candler for Advent changed your perspective about the meaning of Christmas?'

This Centennial Commemorative Edition of Connection focuses on the 100-year anniversary of Candler School of Theology. As we celebrate our centennial, we reflect on the legacy of the school and the individuals, events and ideas that shaped us. Understanding from whence we've come will empower us to continue moving forward with God as we seek to embody our prophetic call.
