Walter Brueggemann and Joyce Hollyday Will Lead Summer Scholars Program, July 23-25


Decatur, GA.— “The Good News of Regime Change: An Invitation to the Contemporary Church,” is the title of Summer Scholars Week, held July 23-25 on the Columbia seminary campus. This event will be led by Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann and Joyce Hollyday, author, speaker and co-pastor of Circle of Mercy congregation in Asheville, NC. The course will offer insights, challenges, and hopeful directions for the church (and congregations) seeking to live the faith with courage in this tumultuous time. Based on his new book, Mandate to Difference: An Invitation to the Contemporary Church, Brueggemann’s presentations will focus on the biblical witness and theological claims that call us out of fear and desire for safety into awe, wonder, and daring discipleship. Joyce Hollyday will offer biblical, theological, and practical insights from her years of commitment and work for justice and mercy lived in community. This conference is for all persons – clergy, educators, and laity – who are concerned with the church’s witness and work today.
