Mary Louise (Mel) Bringle, professor of philosophy and religion and chair of the Humanities Division at Brevard College in Brevard, NC, holds a Ph.D. in Theological Studies from Emory University. Her scholarly work bridges the disciplines of theology and psychology in a contemporary approach to the seven deadly sins. (Her books, Despair: Sickness or Sin? and The God of Thinness: Gluttony and Other Weighty Matters, were published by Abingdon Press; and she is presently writing a book on envy.) Winner of numerous international hymnwriting competitions, she was recognized by The Hymn Society in 2002 as “the emerging hymn text writer of the US and Canada.” Her first single-author collection of hymn texts, Joy and Wonder, Love and Longing, was recently published by GIA. Many EEWC members will remember the workshop Mel presented at the 1990 EEWC Conference in Chicago.
