United Lutheran Seminary names first president


On April 20, Theresa F. Latini was named the first president of United Lutheran Seminary, the consolidation of the ELCA seminaries in Gettysburg, Pa., and Philadelphia. Latini, who will begin her term July 1, is a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) pastor and professor at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Mich. “I am honored and humbled to be called to serve as the first president of United Lutheran Seminary,” she said. “Grounded in the promises of God, this bold and innovative union of two historic Lutheran institutions will enable us to educate and empower public Christian leaders for confessionally rooted, ecumenically connected and interculturally competent ministry in the 21st century.”


ELCA, WELCA communications receive awards


Living Lutheran won four awards at the 2017 Associated Church Press convention April 28 in Chicago. Two awards of merit were received in the “feature writing” and “department” categories, while two honorable mentions were earned for “editorial and opinion piece” and “convention meeting coverage” categories. Women of the ELCA (WELCA) received eight awards at the ceremony and four awards in March at the Religion Communicators Council convention, also in Chicago. Awards were given for work completed in 2016.
