Community Breakfasts

Our Community Breakfasts are a way of inviting the larger community into the Divinity School. These Breakfasts provide opportunities for the community to meet VUDS faculty, students, and staff, to hear about topics and projects of current interest, and to consider together important issues confronting us on local, national, and global levels. These Breakfasts provide a setting for getting to know one another and to discover our common interests.

Emilie M. Townes 

Dean of Vanderbilt Divinity School and E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society

How is a Divinity School to Respond?

We  are living in turbulent times in our society and in our churches.  We have division hither and yon that sometimes shake us to the core as we try to figure out how we should hold government accountable to the directions we are taking. Religious bodies are often in turmoil themselves as the internal theological differences are threatening to pull folks apart rather than bring them together.  In times like these, Dean Townes will explore how VDS can be both a pastoral and a prophetic leader in tangible ways that help us find our way.
