The Candler Centennial in Story and Prophecy
The Candler Centennial in Story and Prophecy
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.
