I was happy to learn this evening that I have been accepted into the master’s degree program at Lancaster Theological Seminary which is adjacent to Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.   I plan to begin classes this fall.  
Among other things, I intend to continue the study of movements for change (King, Gandhi, etc.) and corresponding practical strategies for grassroots community progress and organizing at the local level.  This is a study I began long ago at Colgate University.   I anticipate eventually working in the non-profit realm serving the community in whatever ways I can.

As some are aware, my interest in this is actually not new.  Soon after I finished my undergrad degree at Colgate, I was accepted into the master’s degree program at Colgate Rochester Divinity School / Crozer Theological Seminary (where Martin Luther King Jr. went to school).  At that time, I deferred and moved to Montana for a while.  I then returned to York, worked for Bell Family Shelter & Kinsley Construction, started a property management company, worked on Central Market, Codo & CapLive and life took on its own wonderful momentum.   

I wouldn’t trade any of that for the world.  And I’m so pleased to now have the opportunity to continue my studies in Lancaster Theological Seminary’s Master of Divinity program when I return from my #COASTtoCOASTbicycleride.  

Lancaster Theological Seminary’s program is rigorous, but I’m looking forward to the challenge and the chance to serve our community in whatever way I can.  https://www.lancasterseminary.edu
