Dear Pacific School of Religion Community,
We are saddened to share that Dr. A. (Andrew) Durwood Foster, Pacific School of Religion Emeritus Professor, passed away on May 20 in Ashland, Oregon, surrounded by his family.
Pacific School of Religion shares the deep disappointment of many members of the United Methodist Church in response to the ruling by the top court of the United Methodist Church, the Judicial Council, that the consecration of openly gay bishops, like alumna Bishop Karen Oliveto, violates church law.
Renowned Methodist historian and theologian, Rev. Dr. Justo González, will be offering a Summer course on Latino/a perspectives on church and theology. The class will take place at Pacific School of Religion, in Berkeley, CA, from June 12 to 16 and can be taken for both academic credit and CEUs.
We are delighted to announce that our 2017 Commencement Speaker will be the Rev. Traci Blackmon, who is the Acting Executive Minister of Justice & Witness Ministries of The United Church of Christ and Senior Pastor of Christ the King United Church of Christ in Florissant, MO. She will be addressing our chosen theme: “Is There No Balm in Gilead: Healing Witness for a Hurting World” based on Jeremiah 8: 18 – 22.
Rev. Dr. Jay E. Johnson was interviewed on Homebrewed Christianity about preaching on the Easter lectionary texts! Check the podcast out here: https://homebrewedchristianity.com/2017/04/10/resurrection-of-the-lord-with-jay-emerson-johnson-lectiocast/
We are excited to welcome Dr. Joung Chul Lee to Pacific School of Religion as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Practical Theology, Education, and Spiritual Formation at Pacific School of Religion (PSR) beginning this coming fall. He comes to PSR as a Louisville Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
