Hood hosting Service of Lessons and Carols on Friday

Hood Theological Seminary is celebrating the Holy Season of Advent on Friday through the observance of the Service of Lessons and Carols. This moving service originated at King’s College, Cambridge, England in the early part of the 20th century and is observed widely today.
The service will be open to the public and will begin at 6 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of Building 100.
Dr. Stephanie Crumpton, assistant professor of pastoral care and counseling at Hood Theological Seminary, will deliver the message at the service. Crumpton joined the faculty at Hood in August of this year. She has pastored and provided specialized care and counseling to teens and adults in local congregations, trained faith leaders from multiple traditions on violence response protocols, and served as a chaplain to low-income families displaced by urban revitalization efforts.
Her congregational involvement includes ministerial leadership in three United Church of Christ congregations after moving to Atlanta in 2002. She has taught pastoral care courses at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, Interdenominational Theological Center and Chicago Theological Seminary.
In addition to working in the church and community, Crumpton has been actively involved in research and on-the-ground work as a court-appointed advocate supporting women, men and children who have experienced family violence. She holds a bachelor of arts degree in broadcast journalism from Langston University, a master of divinity degree with a concentration in pastoral care from Interdenominational Theological Center, and a doctorate of theology degree in pastoral counseling from Columbia Theological Seminary.
Hood Theological Seminary is located at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive.
