NEW! Climate Justice & Faith Course at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary

An invitation from Cynthia Moe-Lobeda:

Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary is so very pleased to announce a new development in our curriculum that may be of strong interest to you.

We have inaugurated a concentration in Climate Justice and Faith! It is available to all M.Div students and will be available to all students in the new Masters in Spirituality and Social Change that we intend to launch in the fall of 2021.

This flier (click here) describes the climate justice concentration. Please see the website for a fuller depiction at: https://www.plts.edu/programs/master-divinity/climate-justice.html

It is so utterly crucial that faith communities provide leadership in moving our world away from climate catastrophe and toward the flourishing of God’s marvelous creation. Therefore we intend – as soon as possible – to create a version of this concentration for people who want to prepare for leadership in creation care and climate justice, but who are not studying for a masters degree.  It will be a certificate in Climate Justice and Faith.  Stay tuned for more information on that opportunity.

We invite you to share this website and flyer broadly in your organization or network.

May God’s power for healing and liberation flow among us,

Hello! My name is Megan Gustafson. I am currently a Master of Divinity student at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.  As the “host” of the “Seminaries” for the Lutherans Restoring Creation page, I will be adding stories of hope and inspiration from seminaries across the nation.  It is also to be used as a resource for seminary students to learn how to be leaders in caring for creation. 

This ELCA seminary section’s goal is to prepare leaders for the ELCA who will offer care-for-creation leadership in ELCA congregations and other institutions and in their communities and the larger world. We seek to:

  • Provide eco-resources and ideas for the full life and mission of seminaries.
  • Sponsor an LRC Seminary Networking group.
  • Offer news, highlights, and stories of seminary events and developments.
  • Link with other like-minded groups.

Please join us as partners to help to make this happen! And, keep checking back below as we are currently adding to this list.
