Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery will deliver online this year's Howard Thurman Lecture for the Candler School of Theology at Emory University on Thursday, November 12, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The lecture, titled “A Homiletical Sankofa: The Spirituals and the Future of Ministry,” will focus on the Black church’s vital practices of music and preaching, exploring spirituals as musical sermons in the Spirit that can serve as a critical resource for reflecting on and moving forward into the future of ministry. The lecture is sponsored by Candler’s Black Church Studies program, which is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year.
