You're Invited! Wet Toes Weekend!

Wet Toes Weekend!

FEBRUARY 7-9, 2014

Wet Toes Weekend is an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with what it's like to be part of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) community. 


You will stay overnight in one of the comfortable LTSP guest rooms in Wiedemann Hall, right in the middle of campus.

More importantly, you will get to know many current students at LTSP; some will be participating in the retreat as facilitators for discussion groups that will take place throughout the weekend.

You will meet several members of the esteemed and world-renowned LTSP. Three will be making presentations at the retreat in an atmosphere similar to a seminary classroom experience:

  • The Rev. Dr. Storm Swain, Associate Professor of Pastoral Care and Theology and Director of Anglican Studies
  • The Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney, Associate Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament
  • Dr. Jon Pahl, Peter Paul and Elizabeth Hagan Professor in the History of Christianity and Director of MAPL Programs

Everyone in the seminary community will be eager to meet you. That includes the Rev. Dr. Phil Krey, president of LTSP, who, together with his wife, René Diemer (LTSP Registrar), will be rolling out the red carpet at their home on campus to host a lunch on Saturday.

The participants will comprise the most important part of the LTSP community for this weekend

...individuals who, like you, are discerning the next exciting chapter of life to which God is calling them. We will reflect together, pray together, worship together, sing together, and laugh together.

It's going to be a great weekend; perhaps the best weekend of your life.
And if you have a friend who's interested in seminary,
