Biography

Growing Up, Education and Teaching

Kendig Brubaker Cully was born November 30, 1913 in Millersville, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His parents, William Bigler and Emma Lavina (Kendig) Cully had six children, four girls and two boys, of whom Kendig was the youngest. Kendig’s father worked for Standard Oil Company and his mother was a homemaker. The family moved from Millersville to Meyerstown, Pennsylvania and it was here that Kendig spent most of his childhood and graduated from High School.

Kendig’s parents were Christians albeit of different faith traditions. His father had been raised in the Presbyterian church, his mother in the Methodist. Since Meyerstown had neither a Presbyterian nor a Methodist church when they moved there the family joined the Evangelical Church, a denomination which later merged with the United Brethren Church to become the Evangelical United Brethren Church (Cully, 1960, p. 154). Years later, Kendig reflected upon his own growth in faith and explicitly noted the formative impact of those early years:

I was born into a Christian family, and I am today a Christian. Not that the process of maturation through which every personality passes fails to bring forth modification…. Something of our beginnings, I am confident, stays with us to help mold us as we are. In my own case I feel that I am a very good example of the kind of Christian Horace Bushnell wanted to create: one so wholesomely nurtured in our faith that he would never know himself to have been otherwise than a Christian (Cully, 1941, p. 2).

In addition to the nurturing in the faith which occurred in his home, Kendig was also nurtured by the collegiate environment of Myerstown, the home of Albright, a college of the Evangelical Church. Kendig reflected upon this confluence of influences:

The prevailing theological tone of the Pennsylvania community of my boyhood…was one of evangelical orthodoxy of a rather unimaginative sort. Yet I can honestly report that I have never acquired a body of notions about religion which my adult experience had to repudiate. This was doubtless due in part to my good fortune in being born into a home where the worldly and the otherworldly were never subject to a dichotomy; in part, to my living in the shadow of a college and to my worshipping in a college church whose theology was interpreted perhaps more rationally than in neighboring communions (Cully, 1941, p. 2). This sense of religion as holistic and all-embracing remained at the core of Kendig’s faith throughout his life.

When Kendig chose the college to attend he turned to American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts. There he majored in English. During these years his combined interests in religion and journalism became deeply rooted. Through “long conversations with fraternity brothers about religion” and strong friendships with people of other faiths, as well as those of secular ideology, Kendig’s curiosity about religion was enlivened. “It was all deliriously exciting” (Cully, 1960, p. 155). But religion was not Kendig’s vocational passion. Journalism fascinated him. He recalls, “I had always planned to enter journalism, and fancied myself sometime to be a writer of the news, an observer of the human comedy (tragedy!)” (Cully, 1960, p. 155). The vocational turn to religion emerged by what Kendig can only name as the “providential guidance of my life.” After college Kendig found himself enrolled at Hartford Theological Seminary. Those years at seminary became decisive for him. He reflects:

At the end of college days I was faced with a choice. Should I try to find out more about religion or should I prepare for a journalistic career? I chose the former without forsaking the latter ambition. I thought at that time that a period of theological study would simply make me a better newspaperman…. Now that was a far cry from a sense of vocation to the holy ministry. Many times during my early months in the seminary I would compare myself with other students who were definitely of the ministerial bent and wonder if I should ever be like them. Thus I entered. I left with the humble conviction that though all the Church might fall to the ground, I at least would want to stand with uplifted hands to proclaim that the eternal God is real even thou men denied him utterly (Cully, 1941, p. 3-4).

By the end of his second year Kendig knew he was going to seek ordination. Although Kendig went to Hartford as a Methodist, he was “not strongly rooted in Methodism.” As he says, “I never saw a D.S” (Cully, 1987). Although Hartford was nondenominational, Congregationalist influence was strong and through friends and the seminary ethos Kendig become involved in the Congregational Church. However, it was at Hartford that Kendig first “encountered the Anglican way.” Attending Episcopal worship services he found the “beauty and aesthetic excellence of the liturgy” very powerful (Cully, 1960, pp. 155-156). He presented himself for confirmation in the Episcopal church and subsequently he went to see the bishop about ordination in the Episcopal ministry. Being informed by the bishop that in order to be ordained as an Episcopal priest he must transfer to an Episcopal seminary, Kendig made the decision not to enter the Episcopal ministry. He finished at Hartford in 1937, graduating with a B.D., and was ordained by the Congregational church in Southwick, Massachusetts on May 23, 1937.

Through his life Kendig had three careers (Cully, 1987). His first vocation was the parish. Upon his ordination he began several pastorates in the Congregational church. He served the village parishes of Southwick (1936-38) and Belchertown, Massachusetts (1938-41), Highlands Congregational Church in the Boston suburb of Melrose (1941-46), and the downtown city parish, First Congregational Church, of Haverhill, Massachusetts (1946-51). Kendig again saw the “Hand of Providence” at work in his life during these years for, as he said, looking back, “I was very, very happy in my ministry as a Congregationist…”. He did have an Anglican twist in his Congregationism. Or as he says, “I was a kind of ‘high-church Congregationist,’… and shared with clerical friends a growing interest in liturgical renewal, a more eucharistically-centered emphasis in worship, though all within the traditions of the New England Congregational way” (Cully, 1960, p. 156). Throughout his pastorates Kendig was very interested in the educational life of the church. In 1951 the First Methodist Church of Evanston, Illinois called him to their ministerial staff as Minister of Education. Kendig served there until 1954.

This call to serve as Minister of Education ushered Kendig into his second career, the career of teaching. He had prepared for this career even while engaging in his first career. While he was pastoring at the Southwick parish he entered an M.R.E. and then a Ph.D. program at Hartford. Being interested in the field of religious education and thinking that he would like to work in that field professionally some day, he took the degrees in the School of Religious Education at Hartford. Kendig received the M.R.E. degree in May of 1938 after writing the thesis, “Biography in the Religious Education of Adolescents.” Building upon that thesis he wrote his Ph.D. dissertation, “Biography in the Religious Education of Adults,” and received the Ph.D. from Hartford Seminary Foundation on May 24, 1939. The call to the First Methodist Church in Evanston, Illinois, in the suburbs of Chicago, was an opportunity to fulfill that long-held professional desire.

Kendig’s move to Evanston was not only significant in his own professional life, but also in the professional life of his wife. While at Hartford Kendig had met Iris Virginia Arnold, a student in the Master’s program in religious education. Kendig and Iris were married on September 9, 1939. During Kendig’s pastoral ministries Iris was engaged in religious education ministry. Their two daughters were born during these years, Melissa Iris in 1941 and Patience Allegra, in 1943. The move of the family to Evanston, where there were rich resources of universities and two seminaries, meant that Iris could work on her doctorate. Kendig decided also to return to formal studies and he enrolled in a Master of Sacred Theology program at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary.

While working full time at First Methodist Church Kendig not only completed the Master of Sacred Theology (in 1953) but also began teaching in the Evanston academic communities. From 1952-55 he taught religious education part time at Kendall College. It was also during this time that he was approached by Dr. Alden Kelley, the Dean of Seabury-Western, with whom he had been reading theology. One of the faculty persons in religious education at Seabury-Western had resigned. Dean Kelley asked Kendig if he would fill in as a lecturer. Answering in the affirmative, Kendig served as Lecturer in Religious Education during 1953-54. The following year he resigned from the First Methodist Church to accept a full time teaching position at Seabury-Western. In addition to being Professor of Religious Education he was also Director of the Master of Arts program. In this position he helped develop the M.A. degree program in religious education at Seabury-Western. This degree program was a response to the need of the Episcopal church for DRE’s at a time when the church had no one trained in the field (Cully, 1987). These were full years for Kendig. He taught at Seabury-Western for ten years (1953-1964).

It was at Seabury-Western that Kendig once again faced the attraction he had to the “Anglican way.” As his wife Iris states, doing the S.T.M. at Seabury-Western “made him Episcopal” (Iris Cully, personal interview, May 25,2002). When faced with the gentle probing question which Dean Kelley asked him one day, “have you ever considered the Episcopal ministry,” Kendig began some “earnest soul-searching” (Cully, 1960, p. 158). It led him to the realization that yes, this is what he really wanted to do. On May 20, 1955 Kendig was made deacon in the chapel of Saint John the Divine at Seabury-Western. Six months later, on December 12, 1955, in his second ordination, he was ordained into the Episcopal priesthood at the Church of St. John the Evangelist in St. Paul, Minnesota.

This ecclesiological shift was not the only major shift of ground for Kendig during the years at Evanston and Seabury-Western. He reflects on those years: “I went through a whole re-education during the height of the Barthian movement. I was very much moved and impressed by neo-orthodoxy. I followed Iris’s notes and bibliography as she was getting educated in neo-orthodoxy in Garrett Theological Seminary to educate and re-educate myself” (Cully, 1987). In fact, Kendig wrote his S.T.M. thesis on “The Views of Emil Brunner Pertaining to Christian Nurture.” Kendig’s shift to biblical theology was alluded to in a veiled poke by William Clayton Bower as he commented in Religious Education: “by no means have all in Israel bowed the knee to Baal” (Bower, 243). While Bower’s concern that Kendig had indeed “bowed his knee to Baal” in this move to biblical theology (Iris Cully, personal interview, May 25, 2002), Kendig found it to be a genuine renewal in his own theological journey.

The scene of Kendig’s teaching career shifted in 1964 from the Chicago suburbs of Evanston to New York City. After ten years at Seabury-Western Kendig accepted a teaching position at New York Theological Seminary where he became Professor of Christian Education. Kendig taught a year (1964-65) and then became Dean of the seminary, a position he held from 1965-1971.

While Kendig’s life of teaching was focused in these two institutions he was guest professor at many others: Pacific School of Religion, Union Theological Seminary, Yale University, University of Pittsburgh, Lutheran School of Theology, Northwestern, Drew Theological Seminary, Fordham University, St. Michael’s College, Boston University, St. Meinrad’s Theological Seminary, Christian Theological Seminary, Bethany Theological Seminary, and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.

When New York Theological Seminary closed down their academic programs in 1971, Kendig says, “I took early retirement” (1987). He and Iris moved to Vermont. Kendig became rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in White River Junction. But his parish work was not the only interruption to this “early retirement.” What Kendig names as “early retirement” became a bridge into his third career, religious publishing. Kendig’s early passion for journalism continued with him throughout his life. He had earned his way through college by proofing at the Springfield Republican, a “great newspaper of New England” (Cully, 1987), and by being editor of a chain of weekly newspapers in Myerstown, Pennsylvania.

During his years of pastoring he had served two years (1949-51) as the Massachusetts correspondent for The Christian Century. Speaking of this passion, Kendig says that journalism engaged him because he enjoyed writing; he liked “cleaning up other people’s manuscripts”; and he worked well with the intensity of deadlines (1987). But even more than journalism, Kendig was a “lover of books” (Campbell). It was the ideas in the books and the whole communication process through which those ideas shaped the world that enthralled Kendig. As he says,

Books are never an end in themselves…; they are the media through which exciting communication can take place among persons – from the author to the readers to the circle of friends and acquaintances of the readers. Back of most of the seminal ideas of our times are some basic books. And the totality of the books published in any decade constitute pretty much the mind of that decade (Cully, 1972).

Upon the closure of his work with New York Seminary Kendig renewed his long held passion for the world of religious publishing. In partnership with Iris, Kendig founded The Review of Books and Religion in 1971. Kendig and Iris perceived a need for, in Kendig’s words, a journal that would bridge the gulf between new books and their potential readers. Religious books tend to get short shrift in most secular journals.

And although denominational magazines and scholarly quarterlies often publish excellent reviews, their primary concern is usually in some other direction, so that only a few reviews can be included in any issue. What seemed to be needed was a paper whose primary purpose would be to get quality reviews to readers as soon as possible after the publication of books (Cully, 1972).

Using the prototype of the New York Review of Books Kendig and Iris began the paper with the first issue on September 15, 1971. They intended this journal as a “service for clergy who need to know what books are [published]” (Cully, 1987). Kendig edited, recruited reviewers, as well as conducted interviews and wrote articles for the paper for ten years. The commitment of Kendig and Iris to the mission of this paper is seen not only in the work they invested in it, but also the finances. Kendig and Iris received no income from The Review; indeed they paid to publish it (Cully, 1987). Positive response followed the initial issues of the paper and its circulation grew rapidly. Needing partners in the venture they sought out publishers, first Seabury Press and then Forward Movement (Campbell). The paper changed its name in 1976 to New Review of Books and Religion. By the 1980’s Kendig realized his need to let go of the intense work of the paper. Dennis Campbell, former Dean of Duke Divinity School, tells this part of the story well:

In 1983, my family and I visited the Cullys at their summer home in Belmont, Vermont. We talked about the future of Books & Religion. Just before we left, Kendig said, “Dennis, what if we gave the review to Duke?” After extensive study of all aspects of the magazine and of the realities of religious publishing, I was more convinced than ever of the need for the unique service Books & Religion was providing…. Duke Divinity School accepted the Cully’s gift in 1983 and became publisher with the January 1984 issue. Kendig Cully agreed to remain as editor for one year to help with the transition (Campbell).

One of the legacies of Kendig in his work with Books & Religion was his “intense interest in people” which he unfolded through his interviews with men and women “prominent in religious scholarship and publishing. He cared about the personal dimensions of the enterprise and the review attracted a group of readers and contributors with a kind of family loyalty” (Campbell). When his wife Iris took a teaching position at Lexington Theological Seminary in Lexington, Kentucky, Kendig became Visiting Professor of Practical Theology at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Lexington. He taught there from 1976-1980. In 1980 he became Dean and later Rector of the Seminary; he served in those capacities until 1985. Indicative of the esteem with which he was held, on December 7, 1984 the Episcopal Seminary bestowed upon Kendig the Doctor of Sacred Theology honoris causa.

Over the years Kendig studied religious education around the globe: in Europe, 1956; in Latin America, 1962; in Asia, 1970; and in the Middle East, 1979. He was a member of several organizations and professional groups: the Religious Education Association, the American Theological Society, the Professors and Researchers in Religious Education, the American Academy of Religion, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and the Masons.

In the summer of 1985 Kendig and Iris retired to Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California. Kendig died of complications from lung cancer on March 29, 1987 at Pomona Valley Community Hospital. He was 73. His funeral was held at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Upland, California. Kendig was buried in Marticville, Pennsylvania. His familial survivors included his wife, Iris, two daughters, Melissa I. Muller of Toledo, Ohio, and Patience A. Ecklund of Port Orchard, Washington, and seven grandchildren. But beyond them his survivors include the many, many people who were taught and nurtured by his love of books, his deep interest in knowledge and specifically the intersection of religion and knowledge, his love of the biblical faith, and his passion for the communication of ideas and faith.

Contributions to Christian Education

Throughout his life, Kendig was, as Harold Burgess has noted, a “perceptive analyst of the religious education scene” (1975, p. 12). Through his writing, editing, teaching, and publishing Kendig offered people a window into the both the religious education landscape and the intersection of religious education and the wider world. The scope of his vision presents a breath-taking view of both.

One of Kendig’s greatest contributions to Christian Education is his work as editor. His depth perception into the nature of Christian Education is displayed in the many edited volumes which he compiled for both the church and the academy. Kendig’s concern and investment in the specific work of teaching in the church spans such volumes as his Prayers for Church Workers to the 11 volumes he edited in the Westminster Studies in Christian Communication.

For several years he was book review editor for Christian Education Findings. Within the academy Kendig’s editing work in such volumes as Basic Writings in Christian Education and Confirmation: History, Doctrine, and Practice, and many others, offers collections of voices and issues which both illumine and deepen the understanding of vital dimensions in Christian Education. The genru of an edited volume in which different voices with varying expertise address a particular issue is an important contribution to the knowledge of any discipline. Kendig’s scholarship through this work has deepened the knowledge base of Christian Education.

As editor, Kendig had a gift for bringing the knowledge of the discipline within a single reference source. He did this in Basic Writings in Christian Education as he gathered “almost inaccessible writings [together] between the covers of a book” (R. C. M., 1962, p. 111). But the fullness of this form of editing came a year later in the Westminster Dictionary. His preface to that work indicates the importance of this kind of volume: “Although a number of encyclopedic reference works covering the Biblical, theological, and historical fields have been projected or published in recent years, not until now has a comprehensive work with religious education as its primary focus been published” (Cully, 1963, p. 1).

This was the first volume of its kind in 50 years and as it sets forth “the whole complex of concerns and interests of mid-twentieth-century Christian education” its worth is immeasurable. Kendig’s sensitivity to the multi-dimensional nature of Christian Education is well portrayed here as the entries span the theology of John Calvin to the practice of role-playing. One of the reviewers of the volume captured its vital contribution: “Occasionally a book is published which belongs in every religious library. This is such a volume…. Not only is this the only volume of its type in print, it is so well done it will be unnecessary for anyone to undertake a similar publishing venture for many years to come” (Schaller, 1965, 48).

Kendig’s passion and vision of drawing the knowledge of the discipline into single comprehensive references continued. After the Westminster Dictionary he continued to dream and plan and work on an enlarged volume (Cully & Cully, 1990, p. xxiii). And so, twenty-seven years after the Westminster Dictionary, and three years after his death, through the work of his wife and co-editor, Iris, his dream and work was brought to fruition in Harper’s Encyclopedia of Religious Education. Through its 716 pages, its 600 articles, and its 270 writers the Encyclopedia presents the multi-faceted field of religious education as it draws from Bible, theology, history, psychology, liturgy and education. Both the scope of the volume and the depth of the content is again an immeasurable contribution to the current and future work in Christian education in churches, synagogues, local and national organizations, as well as the academy. And it certainly can be said again that this volume “is so well done it will be unnecessary for anyone to undertake a similar publishing venture for many years to come.”

Besides the contribution of Kendig to Christian Education, which is tangibly present in these volumes, Kendig’s contribution is also found in the character of his work in teaching and scholarship. Within this discipline Kendig’s work was one of connecting diverse voices. In his writings, in his work with Review of Books in Religion, and in his teaching, Kendig connected people and ideas from a cross-section of religious life: theorists and practitioners; liberals and conservatives; professors, clergy, and laity; seminaries and colleges/universities; popular issues and scholarly issues; past voices and contemporary voices; Catholic, Jewish, and Protestants. Kendig’s gift of keeping these diverse voices and perspectives in conversation offers a model for discerning and carrying out our common task of deepening the religious life of people through the richness of a multiplicity of paths.

Excerpts from Publications

Cully, Kendig Brubaker. (1965). The search for a Christian education – since 1940. Philadelphia: Westminster Press. (pp. 174-175).

“Religious education cannot be influential in helping to recover the teaching ministry of the church in its fullness unless there is a willingness to get beyond the stage of being a how-to-do-it laboratory. Emil Brunner did point out that many a person will go to heaven on account of his mastery of the ‘what’ but to hell because of his failure in the ‘how.’ But Brunner was assuming a mastery of the ‘what’ that will necessarily spill over into the pragmatic considerations of the ‘how.’ If the ‘how’ is to rate as a theological discipline, it must be buttressed by thoughtful content and inquiry and a willingness to reckon with facts of historical development.”

Cully, Kendig Brubaker. (1966, November-December). The discipline of Christian education. Religious Education, 61, 455, 456.

“Thus it is important to keep all kinds of channels open to the world. Theology and art, theology and politics, theology and economics, theology and social problems, theology and mental health -- all these are concerns of ours because we are Christ’s. Christian education, dealing as it does with matters of explication, communication, dialogue and the change of attitudes, being concerned with the arousal of sensitivities in young and old, necessarily has to be very much concerned with what is happening in the other disciplines that tell us about the human situation…. Again, Christian education as a theological discipline can help the Christian community re-evaluate its own life in education. Although we must be open to the secular disciplines, to learn whatever we can from them, it is primarily through our internal life within the Church that our chief work will be done. No one else could offer a Christian education but the Christian community, nor would we permit anyone to usurp the Church’s God-given responsibility. God sends us those whom it is our duty and privilege to education. It is our assigned task.”

Cully, Kendig Brubaker. (1964, September-October). Historical dimensions for Christian education. Religious Education, 59, 385.

“[T]he church’s practical work in the world will be strengthened in so far as those responsible for its teaching are able to think through intelligently and consecratedly the distinctive roots of its teaching. It is notorious that heresy after heresy from the ancient past looms freshly in each generation as if they were being presented to the world newly conceived. A little heresy is not a dangerous thing: in fact the church grows stronger whenever it is able to combat a heresy constructively. But that is a different thing from letting purely secular norms take over, or for religious leaders to assume, even in the name of goodwill, that the theological dimensions ought to be soft-pedaled or submerged. The church lost higher education, for all practical purposes, when in the name of universalisms of various kinds it surrendered the ivy hall to secular standards exclusively. The presence of a denominational executive or a clergyman or two on a board of trustees does little.I am not arguing for a return to a church-dominated society. But I am urging that we ought to be at least historically sophisticated enough to recognize the difference between God presented as the ‘great valuer of persons,’ or the ‘principle of concretion in the universe,’ and the God who is Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Shades of Pascal! The least the teachers of the church can do for our people is to help them differentiate among the principalities and powers of this world…. The Christian witness is to and in the world; it is never a mere reflection of the world. Teachers who know of the long centuries of development of the church’s involvement with the world in and through education will be sensitive to these differences.”

Cully, Kendig Brubaker. (1969, March-April). The uses of history in religious education. Religious Education 64, 141.

“Now what will happen when we take history more seriously as an ingredient of religious education? First, I would suggest that the scope of the task in which we are engaged will be immeasurably enriched…. By ‘scope’ I mean just the big, inclusive sweep. Those first centuries belong to us, as do the tenth and the nineteenth centuries. Each generation in its day has had to ask what it felt impelled to communicate religiously, and how to do so. The educational methodologies of which we think so highly are often prefigured in those of an earlier time. It occurs to me that if indeed we are living, as some have said, in a post-Christian culture, maybe some of the approaches used by the church in a pre-Christian culture will have more relevance for us some day soon than do the fancy educational apparatuses we have conjured up for a ‘packaged,’ suburban, institutionalized faith. Tillich may have been right in arguing that we have to teach in such a way as to lead to the kinds of questions to which the biblical faith can speak relevantly…. Such a perspective will make us a little less proud of our own solutions and willing to learn from the experience of our predecessors as Christian educators. Furthermore, we shall be comforted by the alternate failures and successes of our forebears, knowing that they too, taking necessary risks and often experimenting in the dark, were seldom completely successful nor utterly dismayed.”
