Practicing Church: Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend has been thinking about the kind of church he would like to attend. But he also asks a different question: What kind of church might attract persons who don’t find anything relevant at church as traditionally done?
Singing the Lord's Song in a Foreign Land: This is a portion of an extended, post-election reflection on the climate in which Phillips Theological Seminary does its work. That extended reflection is being sent to students, employees, trustees, and alumni/ae. President Gary Peluso-Verdend is taking this opportunity to restate what he considers to be Phillips’s core educational values.
PhillipsFest Benefit Concert Exceeds Goals: Plans are already underway for the next PhillipsFest benefit concert after the first-ever event with The Indigo Girls exceeded its goals.
The Danger of Nostalgia: Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes in his blog this week, "Nostalgia evokes a sweet pain of visiting those places in our past that were enjoyable, and past. But seeking to make the past our home is unproductive and, in some cases, dangerous."
Now, Vote for Compassion: Regardless of where you live, I encourage you to find a way to remind yourself to ask the question, at least once a day: “What is the compassionate thing to do?”
Confession on Election Day: The words and actions spoken and revealed throughout the presidential campaign leave us feeling wrung out and yucky. We ask to be forgiven for our contributions to a campaign that seldom appealed to the “better angels of our natures.”
Why I'm Fasting on Election Day: Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend is going to fast on Election Day. "I’m feeling a strong need to reflect, to cleanse, and to repent," he writes in his most recent weekly blog.
Phillips Theological Seminary Receives Five-Star Diversity and Inclusion Honor: The Tulsa Regional Chamber’s diversity business council, Mosaic, has honored Phillips Theological Seminary with its highest rating as an employer with an inclusive workplace culture.
