Dear Friends and Colleagues:

At its winter meeting, the Board of Trustees began a process that will eventuate in "The Plan for the Bicentennial (2012–13)." Just over a decade from now the Seminary will celebrate 200 years of service to Jesus Christ  and his church. The full story of these two centuries of institutional ministry and mission is known only to God and therefore cannot be told by historians. But vignettes that make up the story are reported in these pages that give us a picture.

It is the story of faculty like Clifton Black, Scott Hendrix, and Stacy Johnson who pour their professional lives into the training of the future ministers and doctors of the church.

It is the story of ecumenical mission as attested by our current John A. Mackay Professor of World Christianity, Dr. Luis Rivera-Pagán, who connects us with our Latin American heritage.

It is the story of international graduates like Setri Nyomi and Pash Obeng of Ghana who go forth to serve Christ in the special ways attested in this issue of inSpire.

What a privilege it is to be a part of this story as the Seminary approaches its bicentennial year. The good news is that the Lord God still blesses this institution in marvelous ways that evidence his infinite grace.

With every good wish, I remain

Faithfully yours,


Thomas W. Gillespie
