Each year, The Beatitudes Society honors prophetic preaching with the J. Philip Swander Brave Preacher Award. With this $500 award we seek to recognize and encourage emerging preachers to address difficult social justice issues through the lens of the biblical story and the current cultural context. This award is made possible through the generosity of James Gertmenian and Sam King.
The Beatitudes Society is pleased to announce three new members of our board: The Rev. Laura Cheifetz, Richard Parker, and Rev. Cameron Trimble.
