We are delighted to welcome the Very Rev. Andrew McGowan as our guest preacher this Sunday! Dean McGowan was appointed Dean of the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale in 2014. An Anglican priest and historian, his scholarly work focuses on the life of early Christian communities, and on aspects of contemporary Anglicanism. His most recent book, Ancient Christian Worship (Baker Academic, 2014) describes ritual practice in the ancient Church. He is currently working on how early Christian and other ancient Mediterranean groups used, changed, and created notions of sacrifice-and on the history and theology of bread.
Before coming to Yale, Dean McGowan was Warden of Trinity College at the University of Melbourne, and a Canon of St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne. He continues as editor of the Journal of Anglican Studies. He blogs at Andrew’s Version and is on Twitter as @BerkeleyDean (for Yale- and Church-related topics and higher education) and @Praxeas (for ancient world and personal interests).
Please take a moment to greet Dean McGowan during coffee hour this Sunday.
