We are very excited to be joined by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry as well as Canon Mary MacGregor. Canon MacGregor will lead us through conversations around hope and creativity. On Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Dr. Jane Patterson, Associate professor of New Testament and President, Anglican Associate of Biblical Scholars, will be our presenter.
