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.
In its centennial year, Candler School of Theology students and faculty are focusing on the issue of food insecurity in the local community, the wider Atlanta metro area and beyond. Jennifer Ayres, assistant professor of Religious Education and a leading voice in the ongoing conversation on food insecurity, answers questions about the topic.

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. We recognize 56 men and women as Centennial Medalists for their extraordinary service to the school, the church and society, explore facets of our past, and reminisce about our most memorable Candler moments. Understanding from whence we've come will empower us to continue moving forward with God as we seek to embody our prophetic call.
