Mercer University Preaching Consultation 2017
James and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology
Author, Speaker, and Activist
A note from the Dean of the John and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology:
The impacts of Irma are being felt all across the southeast. Many of our communities and churches are reeling from the effects of the storm, putting additional work and stress on our pastors. For our speaker, Brian McLaren, the storm had a serious impact on his community and family, though, mercifully, his home survived. Also, for our faculty and students, the storm has resulted in class cancellations, power outages that remain unresolved, and in some cases, trees literally on or in homes. As a consequence we are suspending our annual consultation until this time next year.
I want to thank you for your willingness to take part in this year’s program and hope you will calendar to participate next year.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
