Join us as we welcome Retired Gardner-Webb Associate Provost Emeritus Doug Bryan to campus to discuss his new book, "Worship Anew in Babylon: Community and Personal Worship Resources." He will be on campus on Feb. 22 at 3 p.m. to discuss the book. The program will be at Dover Library in the large conference room on the third floor.

He created the book with the hope of providing encouragement, insight, and discussion to learn to live, even prosper, and to sing songs of praise and worship in times of exile. Exile is a time of new thoughts, understandings, revelations, and actions.

Bryan came to Gardner-Webb as a professor of religious education in 2002 and worked various faculty and administrative roles for over 17 years. A native of South Carolina, he holds five undergraduate and graduate degrees. He is an active church member. In his spare time, he enjoys antiques, writing and reading. He is married to Julie, and the couple have two adult sons, Matthew and Stephen.

The material in the book is designed to provide devotional readings for individuals. It can be used for personal spiritual enrichment and challenge. The chapters represent various common themes or events in the life of the local congregation and the individual. Some of the topics are baptism and communion, benevolence and justice, biblical emphasis, creation celebrations, death and grief, thanksgiving, weddings and marriages.
