Volume 6 Number 2
There are times when events make editorial decisions. The winter 2002 issue of inSpire was planned around the theme of spirituality and the life of the Spirit in Christian community long before September 11. To address the theme, we planned articles by Seminary professors Diogenes Allen and Paul Rorem on aspects of spirituality; a story on the labyrinth project of PTS alumna Lauren Artress at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco; a story introducing Kristin Saldine, the Seminary's new minister of the chapel; and a reprint of Martin Luther King Jr.'s eulogy for PTS alum and martyr James Reeb, illustrating how seeking justice can be a powerful avenue for spiritual witness.
Then four American passenger planes became weapons of terror on September 11, and a nation was changed.
So to what now seems a providentially chosen issue on spirituality, we quickly added features on how the campus community reacted as an academic year like no other began, and how 19 alums intimately affected by the tragedies responded.
To include these features, we decided to omit the regular Outstanding in the Field section, acknowledging that the many pastors and chaplains who responded to the needs of congregations and individuals across the nation and the world after the events of September 11 are all outstanding witnesses to the Christian gospel of the love of God in Jesus Christ.
We hope this issue of inSpire will nourish your spirit.
