We Need Decay: An Exposition of Romans 8 with Presian Burroughs

March 2, 2020

Presian fell in love with God's Word & creation while growing up in northeast Ohio on a small farm. She studied biology and bible in undergrad. Several years later, she received her Master of Divinity degree from Duke Divinity School. While her husband, Brad Burroughs, began his PhD in Ethics and Society at Emory University, she worked as the Local Missions Coordinator for a large UM church in Atlanta and then as Interim Associate Director of Georgia Interfaith Power & Light. She then earned a Doctor of Theology in New Testament and Ecological Theology from Duke Divinity School. She is currently an assistant professor of New Testament and aims to help God's people follow Christ faithfully, while alleviating creation's slavery to destruction in every way possible.

Rev. Karen Mann

Karen is a pastor in the United Church of Christ and worked for a number of years as a hospital chaplain before following her passion for food on to the farm. The first stop was as the Market Manager for a network of farms for refugees. Given that she didn’t meet any of the qualifications, she’s pretty sure she got the job by describing how much she loves turnips. She has now settled on her own farm in central Virginia, Heart & Bones Hollow, with her partner and two kids. Together they raise goats, pigs and a variety of produce for market.  She is also the pastor of a new Dinner Church in her rural community and hoping to find ways to bring the farm and the faith community together.

Land, Food, and Faith Formation: A Conversation with Jade Clark and Nathan Dorris from Memphis Theological Seminary

Memphis Theological Seminary is currently accepting applications for the Doctor of Ministry in Land, Food, and Faith Formation. This dynamic and innovative low-residency program is open to students who are passionate about the intersections of ministry with agricultural practices, food justice, care for the land, and the role of faith communities in both rural and urban settings. 

Students in this program will explore the theological and ethical dimensions of land and its use, the role of food in our lives, and the ways faith communities both shape and are shaped by their relationship with land and food. This program will provide theological resources and practical models for the practice of ministry in faith communities which seek to relate more intentionally to the care of land, food, and all living creatures. 

Instructors in this program--like Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III and Nurya Love Parish--have been at the forefront of food justice and creation care.

The first two-week residency for the new cohort takes place in June 2020, and applications are currently being accepted until April 30.
