Nathan Stucky on Wrestling with Rest in a COVID World

September 9, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Overview

In all our time in life and ministry, have our calendars ever looked like they look amid pandemic? So much simply disappeared: coffee dates, graduations, youth group, and soccer. All gone. So much to grieve. Our rhythms of work and rest have been utterly discombobulated. Is this Sabbath? Who are we when our calendars turn upside down? We feel acutely the difficulty of this moment, but we also sense the gifts this moment brings. Will we learn what we need to learn? Join the conversation as we wrestle together with work, rest, ministry, and pandemic, and as we imagine together the future to which God is calling us.

Nathan Stucky

Nathan Stucky, MDiv ’10, PhD ’13, serves as director of The Farminary Project at Princeton Theological Seminary. He 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 (Kansas), Nathan spent six years doing ecumenical youth ministry on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and two years farming back in Kansas. After farming, Nathan earned an MDiv and a PhD (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, New Jersey, with his wife and three children.
