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.
An upcoming Dean's Lecture at Candler School of Theology will explore race relations and the events in Ferguson, Missouri, presented by the Rev. Osagyefo Sekou. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, April 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

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.
