Last Friday I was very happy to participate in the Graduation Ceremony of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. While I often get to Gettysburg to visit, I rarely am able to attend graduation. It was very enjoyable.
I was particularly happy to be able to present the Consortium Ecumenism Certificate to Susan Beck. Susan had been my student in a course on ecumenism at Gettysburg. She went on to finish the 12 graduate credits. She also went on to win the national essay contest of the Lutheran Ecumenical Officers [the LERN network] and to revive the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Service at her Internment Placement. She is quite an effective ecumenist. Susan is in her second career–an encouragement to all of us who have passed 45!
