Marc Smith awarded Sewanee fellowship-in-residence, developing gun violence prevention curriculum
The Rev. Marc D. Smith, Ph.D. has been awarded a Fellowship-in-Residence by the University of the South's School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee.
During the February 12-23, 2018 residential period at Sewanee, he will continue to research material for the development of an adult formation curriculum on the church's response to violence, to include modules on: theological perspectives on violence; the American culture of violence; the gun violence crisis; domestic and sexual violence; bullying; and forgiveness, reconciliation and hope.
He anticipates piloting the curriculum in the Diocese of Missouri during the 2018-2019 program year and, following feedback and revision, making it available to the wider church.
The Rev. Dr. Smith is the Bishop's Deputy for Gun Violence Prevention in the Diocese of Missouri and also serves as Priest Associate at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion in University City.
