Brian Stewart and the Atlantic School of Theology
Brian Stewart is a well-known, and long-time correspondant for CBC News.
He was the first to bring us the story of famine in Ethiopia in the nineteen eighties, something that changed broadcasting and humanitanian work forever.
Brian also covered the Falklands War among other conflicts, he told us stories from the former Soviet Union, the Middle East - and Margaret Thatcher's England.
During all that he felt his job was always to show how human beings not only fall prey to evil, but how they rise above it.
Brian was in Halifax to speak at the fortieth anniversary gala for the Atlantic School of Theology.
The Atlantic School of Theology was actually born during a time of dramatic change in the way people worship.
That was four decades ago, and the school, which is unique in the world, is celebrating its anniversary this week.
Margaret Sager is the chair of the board of govenors at AST.
