"This is my Story" Faculty reflections and connections

Move past the faculty CVs and learn about the individuals who are changing the face of Princeton Seminary.

One way to create covenant community is through the sharing of stories. Stories help us to celebrate our individual gifts and sense of diversity. Come and hear the stories of faculty members as they share their newest projects and their journey to Princeton Seminary.

Eric Barreto, Keri Day, Nate Stucky, and Jacq Lapsley will share their journey to Princeton Seminary as well as their exciting new work. Help us celebrate them as they continue the tradition of educating faithful Christian leaders.

Morning Bible Studies

Start your day off right by joining Abigail Rian Evans, MDiv ’61, Professor Emerita of Practical Theology, or Shane Berg, MDiv ’00,  PTS Executive Vice President and former Assistant Professor of New Testament, for morning reflections on scripture that promise to be both engaging and insightful.

“Experiencing Community Through the Lens of the Bible: From Brazil to Princeton and In Between”
Texts: Acts 4:32-35; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31

In this interactive Bible study, Dr. Evans will explore Acts 4:32-35 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 in light of her experiences in the 1960s in the mato of Brazil, during the radical student protests at Columbia University in the 1970s, in the 1980s in metropolitan DC with persons with disabilities and the elderly, and in the 1990 and 2000s with Princeton Seminary students and what they taught her about community.

“The Gospel and the Common Good”
Shane Berg
Text: Matthew 5:1-16

In a polarized age in which competing camps advocate for their own interests and agendas, there is a great need to articulate a compelling vision for service to the common good. In this study, we will explore how the beatitudes in the Gospel of Matthew provide us with a robust theological rationale for serving the common good in the name of Jesus Christ.

“8 by 5 WIM Party and Story Slam: All Together Now”

All alumni are invited to join WIM (Women in Ministry) for conversation, stories, dessert, munchies, wine, and more (read: non-alcoholic beverage choices) on Tuesday, May 15, at 8:15 p.m. in Scheide Hall. 

Prepare a five-minute story about finding or experiencing community.    Maybe community came as a surprise (or even as a shock) to you.  Sometimes we have to open our eyes to really see it. Who’s my neighbor?  Who’s at my table?  

When you get to Scheide Hall, put your name on the slip of paper provided, and put it in the hat. 8 names will randomly be drawn. 8 names. 8 stories. No judges. No scoring. No prizes. Just fun! 

Storytelling is optional (we need an audience, too!). 

Questions? Text or Email Mary Beth Anton, MDiv ’89, Coordinator of WIM at 432-638-9826 or womeninministry@ptsem.edu
