Insights from Dean Townes

Dear alumni/ae and friends,

The last few weeks have been a busy time at the Divinity School. Along with classes, assignments and lectures, we hosted “On Care for Our Common Home,” which focused on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ (Praise be to you); a daylong symposium on sustaining movements for social change; and a talk by community organizer and activist Bree Newsome. The latter two were part of our Transformative Justice series this academic year.

In addition, more than 200 of our alumni/ae and students came together this month at the Carpenter Program’s 20th anniversary conference for spiritual and intellectual growth as well as camaraderie and celebration.

The Carpenter conference succeeded in crossing generational boundaries with returning alumni/ae spanning four decades. It was wonderful also to see some of our future scholars and ministers with more than two dozen undergraduates and prospective students in attendance. My colleague and founding Carpenter Program director  Amy-Jill Levine  led off our conference with a powerful  Antoinette Brown Lecture that you can watch on the Divinity YouTube channel.
