The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) community continues in mourning with the nation as funerals are held for Pastor Clementa C. Pinckney and the eight other persons killed while engaged in Bible study and prayer June 17 at historic Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The community continues to ask and respond to the question: What can, and must, people of faith, and a community whose mission is to raise leaders in the world, do to address not only the deaths but also the underlying issues raised — again — by this act, an act that took the lives of people engaged in learning about God, singled out because they were African American — for the church, for the nation, for the world, for God’s creation.
