Mount talk to examine  spirituality through agriculture
Nathan Stucky, director of the Farminary Project at Princeton Theological Seminary and an ordained minister in the Mennonite Church, will present “God and Dirt: Toward a Soiled Spirituality” at Mount Saint Mary College on Thursday, April 11 at 4 p.m.
The free, public event will take place in the Mount’s Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, room 218.
Stucky will discuss his involvement with the Farminary Project at Princeton Seminary, which integrates theological education with small-scale regenerative agriculture.
The talk is part of the college’s Laudato sí Lecture Series. It’s being spearheaded by the Mount’s Catholic and Dominican Institute (CDI) and the Division of Natural Sciences.
Stucky grew up on a farm in Kansas, where his love for Christian faith and agriculture first took root. After earning a BA in Music from Bethel College, he spent six years doing ecumenical youth ministry on the eastern shore of Maryland, and two years farming back in Kansas. Later, he earned an MDiv and a PhD (Practical Theology, Christian Education and Formation) from Princeton Theological Seminary. His scholarship explores questions of land, ecology, theology, agriculture, justice, joy, and Sabbath as they relate to theological education. He is also the author of Wrestling with Rest: Inviting Youth to Discover the Gift of Sabbath.
The Mount’s CDI is directed by Charles Zola, assistant to the President for Mission Integration and associate professor of Philosophy. CDI not only upholds the Dominican heritage at the Mount, but also fosters dialogue between Catholic and Jewish communities and embodies the study and service charism of the Dominicans, providing a forum for discussing current ethical issues.
