We are pleased to welcome the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey to the Nashotah House campus! Beginning on Monday, July 21st and continuing through Friday, August 1st Lord Carey will teach one of the seminary’s advanced degree courses titled The Doctrine of Mankind. The course will give an overview of the Christian teaching on humanity and its relationship to God, the world, sexuality, and the common life. The Rev. Dr. Jack Gabig, Director of Advanced Degree Programs shared the following reflection,
“His Lordship, Archbishop Carey, is truly a great theologian and a man who has dedicated his life and ministry to the equipping of men and women for service to the Church and to the World. Our students will benefit from his many years of scholarship and practical pastoral experience as they explore the meaning of what it means to be human.”
Since his retirement as Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has remained active as a leader in the larger Church. His resume is substantial, containing fellowships at multiple colleges, a Vice Presidency with the non-profit Tearfund, a Chair position with World Faiths Development Dialogue, and twelve honorary doctorates. Until recently, Lord Carey also served as the Chancellor of the University of Gloucestershire and President of the London School of Theology. He is currently the President of the United Church Schools Trust and United Learning.
