WASHINGTON, D.C.: Cathedral College of Preachers features Michael Battle

"Entrusting the Message of Reconciliation" is the theme of the conference at the Cathedral College of Preachers featuring the Rev. Michael Battle, associate professor of theology at Virginia Theological Seminary.

The January 15-19 conference at the Cathedral College of Washington National Cathedral will focus on the skills and content given by Jesus to entrust the message of reconciliation on three levels: personal, ecclesial and global. Through these three levels, and using exemplars like Desmond Tutu, participants will learn to practice and preach a spirituality of reconciliation so that in the end, a spirituality of reconciliation exemplified by Jesus takes over.
