LTSP First North American Partner in Global Network for Public Theology

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) is pleased to become the first North America member of the Global Network for Public Theology (GNPT), an academic research partnership of 24 institutions across six continents which promotes theological contributions on public issues, especially those issues affecting the poor, the marginalized, and the environment in a glocal (global-local) context. GNPT sponsors the publication of the International Journal of Public Theology.

The Rev. Dr. Katie Day, Charles A. Schieren Professor, Church and Society and Director of the Urban Concentration, is LTSP' contact for GNPT.  LTSP is also the home of the LTSP Multicultural Mission Resource Center, which was established to help congregations and the Church open up and reach out to the communities in the neighborhood and beyond.
