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.
On March 1, students, faculty, staff and alumni from Candler School of Theology and the Emory and Atlanta communities held a vigil of 'life, light and solidarity' for Kelly Gissendaner, Georgia's only female death row inmate, who is scheduled to be executed on March 2.
