A Seminarian I Deeply Respect

Women's LifeIn honor of Black History Month, the Women’s Life Office at Southeastern Seminary facilitates an annual blog series that features the writings of Southeastern students, staff, faculty and friends.  Last year I wrote a piece reintroducing Phillis Wheatley to our seminary family and this year I’ve written a piece encouraging a “seminarian that I deeply respect,” namely the women on Southeastern’s campus.  Click here to read the piece.

Southeastern Hosts Community Dialogue on Racial Reconciliation

16264361829_3f4762657e_oLast month I was honored to emcee a dialogue on racial reconciliation that was organized by the Town of Wake Forest and hosted by Southeastern Seminary.  In the wake of the Michael Brown and Eric Garner incidents, the goal of the event was to begin an ongoing community dialogue that would strengthen relationships along the lines of difference.
