Welcome to Seminary: What Now?

Breathe. Again. Repeat as necessary.

Each of you has a journey and a story to go with it. Your journies and stories have merged with ours and are writing new stories of our journey together. 

Seminary is a rewarding, challenging, deeply fulfilling place, space and experience. The faculty, students, staff and administration of LTSP bid you welcome in peace. We pray your time with us will be a blessing.

September 11 response collage

It's hard to believe that I've been doing outsourced web work for the seminary for almost a decade.
