Greetings Gammon Alum and Friends,
I hope you are doing well. The month of October brings a variety of special days, such as Yom Kippur, United Nations Day, and Halloween. It may currently feel like the month of July, because of the hot temperatures reaching over 90 degrees for several weeks in many parts of the United States of America, but it is the month of October.
During this month of October, I attended a wonderful gathering of Gammon Alums and Friends of the North Georgia Conference of The UMC at Mt. Bethel UMC located in Marietta, GA. The Gammon gathering included delicious food, thoughtful conversations, and soulful prayers. It is a wonderful time to be a Gammon Alum and Friend!
Gammon will host CPE Day on October 24th at 11am-1pm. I invite everyone to attend this event. A variety of chaplains from hospitals, military, and other arenas will bring their information to Gammon Theological Seminary to offer to students, alums, and friends for the exploration of possibilities. I encourage you to visit The Center For Chaplaincy at Gammon Theological Seminary’s resource page.
Millions of Christians will prepare during October for “All Saints Sunday” on November 3, 2019. Many saints from the past helped to build a solid foundation for Gammon Theological Seminary. Read the following books to learn more about some of the significant history of Gammon Theological Seminary:
1. “Africa and the American Negro: Addresses and Proceedings of the Congress on Africa: Held under the Auspices of the Stewart Missionary Foundation for Africa of Gammon Theological Seminary in Connection with the Cotton States and International Exposition December 13-15, 1895.” by John Wesley Edward Bowen (1896)
2. “Methodist Adventures in Negro Education” by Jay S. Stowell (1922)
3. “Black Awareness: A Theology of Hope” by Major J. Jones (1971)
Gammon Theological Seminary is fortunate to have been blessed by saints of the past and saints of the present working diligently for this “School Of The Prophets.” Prophets are still needed today. Join us in spreading God’s messages of hope, love, forgiveness, and redemption!
Grace and Peace,
