Deborah Van Broekhoven to Speak on New Era Baptist Institutes

American Baptist Historical Society presents Deborah Van Broekhoven speaking on New Era Baptist Institutes:

A Nineteenth-Century Path Toward Cooperation

Dr.  Van Broekhoven will explore the challenges experienced by black and white Baptists who cooperated to sponsor New Era Baptist Institutes, short term schools for African-American church leaders.  Conceived by Northern and Southern Baptist leaders after their Fortress Monroe meeting in 1894, these schools across the south provide a rare example of black and white leaders working together.  

This event is free and open to the public.  Friday, September 30, 2016, 7 p.m. Reception following. Mercer University-Atlanta Campus; Atlanta Administration and Conference Center Auditorium (2nd floor), 2930 Flowers Road South, Atlanta 30341.

 

Dr. Van Broekhoven is the immediate past Executive Director of the American Baptist Historical Society. She holds a doctorate in history from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) and served as a professor at Ohio Wesleyan University before joining the staff of ABHS as Executive Director in 1998. She has had a longstanding interest in the history of race relations, beginning with her book The Devotion of These Women: Rhode Island Women in the Antislavery Network.

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
