Congratulations to Butler University religion grad Brittney D. Stephan on having her sermon published as a chapter in this new book from Chalice Press!

The public narrative about religion in America warns of loss and decline. But the young men and women voicing their convictions in this book tell a different story. They gathered in Lexington, Kentucky, in January of 2017 to preach at the National Festival of Young Preachers.

For those who may have missed it, James McGrath was in Transylvania over the holidays and shared photos from the trip, specifically with an aim to encouraging interest in the trip he will be running to Romania and Hungary next May. If you missed the photos, pay a visit to his Facebook profile and have a look at some of things that you might see if you travel there next summer!

Are you ready to sign up for the May 2018 trip to Romania and Hungary that James McGrath will be leading from Butler University?
