Conversations from Kanuga
The Apostle Paul, in his hymn to love, wrote: “12For now we see in a mirror, dimly,[b] but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13 And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” (I Cor. 13:12-13 NRSV)
In this new series, Kanuga Camps & Conference Center presents provocative online dialogue to reveal the kingdom of God at hand. By seeking a more mindful and compassionate world together, we honor the dignity of every human being and promote justice and peace. Our honest, vulnerable exchange trusts that God will reveal a sacred path forward, not only for ourselves, but for the world God so loves.
The series, held via Zoom, features guests addressing the challenges of our day. The next conversation is July 19 at 7 p.m., when The Rev. Michael Sullivan, Kanuga’s president and CEO, will welcome The Very Rev. Randolph “Randy” Marshall Hollerith, Dean of Washington National Cathedral.
Hollerith was named the 11th Dean of Washington National Cathedral in 2016 after serving as rector of St. James’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Va., for 16 years. He holds degrees from Denison University and Yale Divinity School. In his tenure at the Cathedral, Dean Hollerith has reoriented the institution toward radical welcome and hospitality, with a particular focus on racial reconciliation and outreach to the nation’s veterans.
In his tenure at the Cathedral, Dean Hollerith has led the creation of a five-year strategic plan, raised $23 million for the renovation of the Cathedral College, overseen budget growth from $14 million to $18 million, and reoriented the institution toward radical welcome and hospitality, with a particular focus on racial reconciliation and outreach to the nation’s veterans.
Under his leadership, the Cathedral has seen growing attendance at worship, three years of budget surpluses and significant progress in ongoing repairs from the 2011 earthquake. In 2018, Dean Hollerith was named one of 21 Washingtonians to watch in the Washington City Paper’s annual People Issue.
The conversation will center around our role in dismantling white privilege and honoring the dignity of every human being.To register:
