Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño of the San Francisco Area of the United Methodist Church and official spokesperson for the UMC Council of Bishops on the issue of immigration will speak at Wake Forest University School of Divinity on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in Wait Chapel on the campus of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. Bishop Carcaño was selected as this year's preacher for the School of Divinity's Mac Bryan Prophetic Preaching Series, which was established in honor and memory of George McLeod “Mac” Bryan, Sr., a professor of religion who taught at the University for thirty-seven years after joining the religion faculty in 1956. He introduced courses on feminism, religion and science, medical ethics, and black and liberation theology. Bryan fought tirelessly for Civil Rights, pursued social reform, and was instrumental in helping to integrate Wake Forest College in the 1960s.
