Three Ways to Make the Seminary Space a Safe One: The situation in the classroom and in a seminary, even a small one such as Phillips is, has gotten complex to the point that I’m not sure the concept of safe space will hold much longer. We don’t seem to be able to juggle the competing needs.
Death Tsunami Threatens Church: With today’s average age in mainline churches at about 60, with many of the largest financial contributors to those congregations in their upper 60s, their 70s, and their 80s, and with such different church-going patterns among the thinner younger generations, there is no doubt that the “death tsunami” will powerfully disrupt an entire way of doing church.
Religious Symbols Don't Belong to the State: Why in heaven’s name would people of faith lend our symbols to the state? How does saying a book or a monument has “historical value” do anything other than relegate those symbols to the past and thus strip or diminish the faith claims that these symbols contain or represent the power to change lives?
It's Not All About the Numbers: The numbers game requires a selective reading of Scripture. From the Hebrew Bible, ignore stories of mass disobedience, that sometimes a movement is successful in numbers but on the wrong side of God! Think Aaron and the Golden Calf story (Exodus 32).
Living Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday in America: As a Christian, I look at life in general, not only my particular life, through the themes of death and resurrection. How shall we, the people of the United States who call ourselves Christian, contribute to a nation moving from Good Friday on to Easter Sunday?
Seminary President Remembers Chester Cadieux: If I were to select one figure who was a truly transformative presence for the seminary, it would be Chester Cadieux. In this time of great turbulence for higher education and in churches, Chester did not assure what kind of future the seminary would have, but he most assuredly gave us a future.
Phillips Seminary Mourns Loss of Board Chair Emeritus Chester Cadieux: The Phillips Theological Seminary community is remembering Chester Cadieux, a major supporter of the school. He died Monday evening at the age of 84.
Lenten Prayer for a Day of Fasting: Would Christians be able to join together in a fast—in a day of self-examination and penance—during some Lent, for our national sins, for those ways in which through actions taken and actions neglected we, as a nation, have broken relationships and acted as if the U.S. is the standard of laws rather than one nation, among others, accountable to a higher law?
Phillips Theological Seminary offers Christian graduate theological education
in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
Courses available on campus and online for certificate, diploma, MDiv, MAMC, MASJ, & MTS
programs, and on campus for the DMin program.
