I had the privilege, honor, etc. to be part of the graduation at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary on Saturday, May 21, 2011. I was recieving a Certificate in Theological Education for Emerging Ministries. It was good to be able to be at graduation and have my family with me. This has been quite a journey and having them with me was very cool. It was also cool that our dear friend Mandy joined us and was the “official” videographer for the event.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that our graduation speaker was Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber from House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, CO. I absolutely love the way Pastor Nadia engages the mission to which we are called to serve as God’s children in the world. I believe that she is a wonderful and important presence in the church today. It was a great joy to hear her speak at graduation.
Anyway, here is her message to us on that day. I thought it was fantastic.
Peace & Enjoy,
