This #Giving Tuesday, please consider a gift to help lighten the debt burden of seminary education for our students.
Consider the thoughts of this year's Soli Deo Gloria Award recipients, seminary donors Helga and Reinhard Schwartz:
"Our parents stressed four priorities, and these were very important in our lives: Education, a Christian faith, caring for the sick, and hard work. We feel a donation to the Lutheran Seminary [at] Philadelphia is most appropriate ... We are happy to be able to do this, thanks to the gifts which were bestowed upon us by the Grace of God."
Consider how seminary graduates apply their education to carry out ministry in the world. Graduates like the Rev. Tricia Neale (MDiv 2007), whose ministry The Philadelphia Inquirer recognized with a front page story in its Thanksgiving edition - read it here.
Consider how LTSP seminarians and seminary graduates touch your life and the lives of those around you. Consider how you can help by making a gift on #Giving Tuesday.

Thank you, and blessings in this Advent season.
