Dean Townes' message

We continue to seek to live in peace and with justice in our troubled land.  Yes, there is violence all around us from Nashville to Ferguson to Detroit to Pakistan.  I wish for us all strengthened resolve to live our faiths and not let go of our commitment to be prophetic witnesses for a deep spirituality that brings in justice.

Rev. Dr. Emilie M. Townes, Dean of Vanderbilt Divinity School
E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society.
