When I started seminary, I applied to exactly one school. I’m part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which has eight seminaries (soon to be seven) throughout the United States. I picked the one that happened to be two miles from my house.
Over the last couple of months, I’ve touched on different types of theology degrees: what they entail, what kind of person should consider them, what benefits they offer, etc. I’ve left one type of degree untouched, until now. It’s the degree I’m earning: the Master of Divinity.
