On Sunday, July 5, 2015 the Rt. Rev. Dr. Terence Kelshaw died peacefully in his sleep. He was 78 years old. 

What a blessed year it has been! It is hard to believe that this time last year I was still unaware that this was where I would be. I was wrestling with my call, had been accepted to a different graduate school program, and had yet to find out that the North American Lutheran Seminary would be in Ambridge, PA, at Trinity School for Ministry. What has unfolded since then has been nothing short of God’s grace and sovereign will, and what a powerful and weathering ride it has been so far! 

I will always remember my first drive from Ambridge to Church of the Epiphany here in Northern Virginia. As I got closer and closer, woods and fields became housing developments. Then, just outside of Leesburg, the housing developments became sprawling apartment complexes and endless tracts of townhouses. I said to God, “You have got to be kidding.” 

Over the summer, the Archivist at Trinity Wall Street in New York City contacted us to ask if we could provide a new home for some old books. Trinity Wall Street has a fabulous Archives collection but not a library, and the building in which the books had been stored was slated for demolition.
