Convocation Sunday, September 9th at St. Paul's Memorial ~ Guest preacher, Dr. Valerie C. Cooper


UVa Students - Welcome Back!

CONVOCATION SUNDAY

Sunday, September 9, 2012

Special Guest Preacher:

Valerie C. Cooper,

associate professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia
Her first book, Word, Like Fire (University of Virginia Press), examined the biblical interpretation of Maria Stewart, a pioneering nineteenth-century African American woman political speaker.  Prof. Cooper’s current research, forthcoming as The Test of Power: Racial Reconciliation in the Church (Abingdon Press), has taken her into the intersection of white and black evangelicalism by examining the successes and failures of racial reconciliation ventures among those churches.

Congregants are encouraged to wear academic regalia.


Join us each Sunday for worship at 8 and 10 am or 5:30pm (followed by dinner and fellowship). Canterbury Fellowship meets Tuesdays at 5:30 at the Canterbury House across Chancelor Street from St. Paul's. Read more information here.
