    "A sermon, Fred liked to say, isn’t always what the people need to hear; it is also what the people would like to say, if they were the preacher." - Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching at Candler, shared this reflection at Fred Craddock's memorial service on March 9, 2015, at Cherry Log Christian Church in north Georgia.

    In 2014, Candler completed Phase II of a decade-long building project intended to bridge teaching, research, spiritual and community life. Stop by for a visit in person, or check out a virtual tour and information from afar.

    Construction on campus: thanks to a generous gift from the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation of Atlanta, the second phase of the school’s new building program is underway. The second phase called for Bishops Hall to be torn down so that the second building, which will house Pitts Theology Library and a teaching chapel, can connect with the first one. #cst #construction #bishopshall #emory

    Pitts Theological Library is a rich resource for the Candler School of Theology and Emory University and has attracted international attention for some of its collections. #pitts #emory #library
