From the President: Now What?
Every once in a while, someone will share something with you - a story, a recollection, a funny scene - only to conclude by saying, "You really had to be there." I feel a little bit like that with regard to the 150th Anniversary celebration. From the time shared with Phil Krey and his family Thursday afternoon to recognize his fifteen years as president and twenty-five years of service to the school, to the service of thanksgiving at the original site of LTSP in downtown Philadelphia, to the gala - and it really was a gala! - banquet filled with moving tributes, prayers, and song (not to mention dinner and dancing!), you really had to be there to take it all in. In this issue we bring you highlights from the celebration, along with stories about the Urban Theological Institute's own 34th Celebration, and more.
