Continuing the Conversation: A Year After Ferguson

LTSP Alumni Association president the Rev. Annemarie Cook (MDiv 2007) in this video reflects on her experience in a suburban Philadelphia congregation on how congregations can carry on conversations about Ferguson, Charleston, #Black Lives Matter, and the continuing challenge of racism in America.

Also continuing the conversation, two LTSP alumni have contributed to October’s Journal of Lutheran Ethics: #BlackLivesMatter. Bishop Wolfgang Herz-Lane (MDiv 2001) of the Delaware-Maryland Synod of the ELCA writes on A City Unraveled: The Baltimore Riots and the Response of the Faith Community, and Rozella White (MAR 2010) writes on The Role of Church for Such a Time as This. Bishop Herzog-Lane and LTSP alumni serving congregations in Baltimore spoke with PS Portions following the Freddie Gray episode and the unrest in the city, and Rozella, Program Director for Young Adult Ministry of the ELCA, shared her perspectives with PS Portions on being an African American executive in a predominantly white denomination, and on her ministry.
