Progressive Christians Need to Evangelize: "Here is a problem for my kin, for those in the progressive quadrant of Protestant Christianity," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend. "The public’s perception of Christianity is thoroughly dominated by white evangelical Christianity."
Theological Education Saved My Faith: Despite warnings that theological education would steal his faith, President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes that his theological education saved his faith.
Every Congregation Is a School… for What?: President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes, "As schools and congregations get into their 'back to the fall routine after the summer' modes, it is a good time to consider what we are teaching—explicitly, implicitly, and by absence."
Phillips Community Members Honored at Alliance Q Banquet: Two members of the Phillips Theological Seminary community were honored by the Disciples LGBTQ+ Alliance with the Rev. Michael Schloff Recognition, while Phillips was recognized as an open and affirming ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) during the 2017 General Assembly.
Questioning the Future of Liberal Protestantism: President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes this week that research on evangelical and liberal congregations in the Pacific Northwest provides reasons for concern of the future for progressive churches.
Toward a More Diverse Phillips Community: President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes on the continued work required if the seminary community is to demonstrate the kind of diversity and inclusion it admires and for which the institution must prepare if it is to be a relevant seminary in a no-racial/ethnic majority nation.
July Fourth: Two Christian Visions of the U.S.: Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend juxtaposes two broad versions, composite sketches, of Christian-informed visions for what the U.S. should be. He thinks you’ll see how the visions also express competing judgments about where the U.S. is and needs to go.
Phillips Theological Seminary to Assume Operations of Mid-America Center for Ministry: The governing bodies of Phillips Theological Seminary and the Mid-America Center for Ministry have approved a plan for the seminary to assume operations of the center’s ministry beginning Jan. 1, 2018.
