2017 Senior Class Reflection: Travis Ewton delivered the senior class reflection at the Phillips Theological Seminary 2017 commencement.
2017 Student Achievement Awards: Phillips Theological Seminary recognizes its students at the end of each academic year with several awards and honors.
Statement on the Acquittal in the Death of Terence Crutcher: Regardless of the reasons the jury voted to acquit the officer who killed Terence, the fact remains: an African-American man without a weapon was killed by a law enforcement officer. That is not only a tragedy. It is morally wrong. It is difficult, even impossible, not to see this wrong as one of way too many national stories of an African-American male, in “hands-up, don’t shoot” posture, killed by law enforcement.
America: Stop Arguing Like Divorcing Churches: From President Gary Peluso-Verdend's weekly blog, "What is the end point toward which the players in our national partisan divide are leading us? I fear we are misusing church divorce language on the national stage. The effect could be dire."
An Oklahoma Budget to Honor Mother’s Day: From President Gary Peluso-Verdend's most recent blog post: Although we in Oklahoma don’t have a budget yet, I predict the question of the morality of this budget will not be a driving or important question in setting the budget. And that is a shame.
Are We Hearing the United Methodist Swan Song?: "A split could be the last action—a swan song— for which United Methodism is known in U.S. society, and that will be a shame," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in this week's blog post.
Two Christian Views on Peace, Justice, Compassion: President Gary Peluso-Verdend provides two interpretations for how the stories Christians have told themselves have been self-serving.
The Future of Ministry: Ministry has always come with challenges. The names of the challenges change with the generations. Regardless of the changes, according to President Gary Peluso-Verdend, face-to-face meetings powered by compassion and understanding will be necessary.
