Alumni Day

Come celebrate the past and future of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary at our annual Alumni Day! Our theme this year is "Encountering God's Word." As a part of our Yost Lecture Series, we're happy to welcome Dr. Frances Taylor Gench, the Herbert Worth and Annie H. Jackson Professor of Biblical Interpretation at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Gench is the author of several books including "Encountering God in Tyrannical Texts: Reflections on Paul, Women, and the Authority of Scripture" (WJKP, 2015), "Faithful Disagreement: Wrestling with Scripture in the Midst of Church Conflict" (WJKP, 2009); and "Back to the Well: Women’s Encounters with Jesus in the Gospels" (WJKP, 2004).
