An Easter message from President Philip Krey

Easter 2013

An Easter message from President Philip Krey
President Philip Krey
For the women, it took a long time for morning to come. The night is long when - in the dead of night - fear, death, and loss weigh down our hopes and dreams. After a long night, the women found the news that the rock had been rolled away from the tomb, and God had broken into all our nights with the morning greeting, "Jesus is Risen." Our nights and mornings need never be the same, as our hopes and dreams are greeted night and day with the newness of the Easter greeting, "Christ is Risen." At the Philadelphia Seminary, all of us wish you a blessed Easter season filled with hope and the presence of God in the risen Christ.

Philip D. Krey

Spring Convocation 2013: Let the Games Begin!

Spring Convocation 2013
Greetings in Christ from 
The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia

Let the Games Begin!

Each year classes that are celebrating their anniversary years (graduation years ending in 3 or 8) engage in a little friendly competition to see who can raise the most money and see their class year emblazoned on the plaques in the Lull Lounge (one for the highest amount and one for the highest percentage). 

Now, winning and having your class year displayed for all to see is nothing to sneeze at. (God bless you!) But the really exciting part is that you have the opportunity to support a new seminary student, honor a teacher who made the difference for you, or support the work of the Urban Theological Institute. And that's not all. Supporting LTSP in its mission to educate and form leaders means that you are, again, part of sharing the Gospel to a world in need. So, as far as I can tell, this deal is one you will not want to pass on!

To make a class gift, click here. Fill in the top portion of the form with you information and enter your class gift amount at "I want to contribute to my class gift." If you haven't yet registered for Spring Convocation events, continue filling out the rest of the form, or call Kathie Afflerbach at 215.248.6324 to register. You can contribute to a class gift if you are already registered or even if you are unable to attend Spring Convocation!

Let me know if you have any questions.

I am looking forward to our time together.
The Rev. Louise N. Johnson
Vice President for Mission Advancement
