Connection Winter 2013 CoverThe latest issue of Candler Connection, Candler’s magazine for alumni and friends, is making its way to mailboxes around the world. The entire magazine is also available online at

Our second issue after a three-year hiatus is dedicated to the topic of neighbors and neighborhoods. In one feature, Bandy Professor of Preaching Thomas G. Long provides a new take on an old question—Who is my neighbor?—and we expand the discussion from there. How can we be better neighbors, serving others in good times and bad? What struggles or divisions hold us back from being good neighbors? How can you be a good neighbor to someone who is different from you? What roles do the church and various ministries play in a neighborhood? Rounding out the issue are recommended reading, the latest books from faculty, alumni updates, and news from our neighborhood and yours.
