The Rev. Porsha Williams Gates twice planned to pursue a Ph.D. in English. Both times she ended up following God’s leading in a different direction—and we’re so glad her path brought her to the PTS community!

During her six years in full-time ministry, a new passion and dream emerged. Porsha began to reimagine the concept of the pulpit, one that would amplify the sounds of humanity, started as a podcast and developed into a corporation: Porshanality Media.

Just as Porsha was shifting her ministry focus fully to media, she discovered the PTS Doctor of Ministry program’s Creative Writing and Public Theology focus. The program not only aids Porsha in her current work, but it also equips her for future projects such as writing, publishing a novel, a book of essays, or a collection of poetry.

The power of memory is important to the exercise of our faith. Scripture teaches us over and over again the importance of remembering where and how God has blessed us. The Psalms are replete with examples of recalling the steadfast love of God and God’s faithfulness to all generations. While we are called to this personal reflection in our daily lives, the most powerful invitations are the calls to corporate and collective remembrance.

Today, September 11, 2021, the United States will collectively remember. We will remember through ritual reflection, solemn prayers, and collective processing. We will reflect on the lives who were lost, the landscapes that were changed, and the dreams that were shattered. Many of us will recall that the devastating events of September 11 provided a rare glimpse of unity and public declarations of faith that had not been seen in our public life. In some respects the horror of that day equalized our humanity and put all of our differences in perspective. Twenty years ago is a generation away, and a lifetime for many has come and gone. Yet, the wounds of the past call us to remember and continually ask for meaning.

Unlike some exercise of commemoration, memory in the life of faith is not just meant to be a reflective exercise. The biblical call to remember is also a call to hope and have faith in God. God is still God in the midst of the tragedies of our life. This was a lesson we learned in the immediate aftermath of 9-11. There is much we continue to learn from the survivors and from one another. Foremost among them is this lesson of hope. As faith-filled leaders of communities across this country, we are called to invite God’s people to both remember and believe in God.

This weekend, as we reflect on the events of the past, I invite us to remember the lessons learned in Sunday school in a simple song that spoke a theological truth, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hand.”

In this Leading Theologically interview, the Rev. Dr. R. Drew Smith reflected on Gallup poll results of more than 50% of the U.S. population said they no longer belong to a church, synagogue or mosque. Dr. Smith’s response: “We shouldn’t sit back and wait for folks to come.” https://www.presbyterianfoundation.org/we-shouldnt-sit-back-and-wait-for-folks-to-come/?fbclid=IwAR3ACnJbOSWEI7NKuDSxTqfs9rYmFXDLoA2BR0iuPa8Ei-ojJn3NdBqdghE

Who are the “nones,” the more than 50% of the U.S. population who told Gallup pollsters last year they no longer belong to a church, synagogue or mosque?

A look at the data, the Rev. Dr. R. Drew Smith said during his interview on Leading Theologically, shows that about 30% of those who indicate they have no formal religious affiliation make $30,000 or less annually and have a high school education or less.

When she was a child, associate professor of New Testament Dr. Jennifer Kaalund was energized by one great dream, and it might not be what you would expect from an accomplished biblical scholar.

She wanted to cure cancer.

Pursuing this aspiration, Dr. Kaalund chose chemistry as her college major, then began a career in health care administration. Seven years into that career while interviewing for a promotion, she was asked what her dream job would be, it was then she realized it was teaching. Read about her path to fulfilling her dream at PTS. https://www.pts.edu/Jennifer_Kaalund

This week we welcomed new students to campus for orientation, while others attended virtually. They represent diverse denominations, and come from not only neighboring communities, but all over the world. While here, the students have been meeting faculty, staff and advisors, touring the Barbour Library, the Kelso Museum, and exploring the surrounding community.

Welcome - we are so happy you are here on campus and online! #PTSnow #theologicaleducation

Not only did PTS welcome new students for orientation this week, we also welcomed staff and faculty back to campus. On Tuesday we were greeted with welcome bags filled with snacks, a travel mug and a PTS-branded mask. Today we all gathered in the courtyard for treats and games! It was wonderful to see each other in person- most for the first time in 17 months, and meet and welcome our new president the Rev. Dr. Asa Lee.

Russian Orthodoxy and Nationhood in the Age of COVID-19 08/23/2021

Russian Orthodoxy and Nationhood in the Age of COVID-19

How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected relations between the Russian state and the Orthodox Church? In this Berkley Center Forum, PTS professor John Burgess explores how everyday Orthodoxy impacts the Russian response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Says Dr. Burgess “When we in the West focus on the church’s loyalty to the Putin administration, we easily miss the complexity of Orthodoxy in Russia.” #PTSfaculty https://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/posts/russian-orthodoxy-and-nationhood-in-the-age-of-covid-19
