Princeton Theological Seminary’s “Farminary” director speaks March 20

Rev. Nathan Stucky, director of the Farminary Project at Princeton Theological Seminary

Rev. Nathan Stucky, director of the Farminary Project at Princeton Theological Seminary, will speak at Furman University’s Charles E. Daniel Memorial Chapel Tuesday, March 20 at 7 p.m.

His CLP talk, “God and the Dirt: Soil, Sacrament, and Christian Spirituality” is open to the public without charge. It is sponsored by Furman’s Office of Spiritual Life.

In his talk, Stucky focuses on Christianity’s role in sustainability practice, and explores the idea that love of God and neighbor might be dependent on and reflected by humanity’s relationship with the land.

Stucky grew up on a farm in Kansas where his love for Christian faith and agriculture first took root. After earning a B.A. in Music from Bethel College (Kansas), Stucky spent six years doing ecumenical youth ministry on the eastern shore of Maryland, and two years farming in Kansas.

Stucky (right, in yellow cap, grey jacket) explores the integration of theological education and agrarianism.

After farming, Stucky earned an M.Div. and a Ph.D. (Practical Theology, Christian Education and Formation) from Princeton Theological Seminary. His scholarship explores the integration of theological education and agrarianism, and he sees the Farminary as a locus for enacting that integration.

Ordained in the Mennonite Church (USA), Stucky engages Farminary work as integral to his calling to teaching ministry. He lives in Princeton, N.J. with his wife and three children.
