Celebrating 50 years of Women’s Ordination in the Lutheran Church in the United States
Author of the 2020 Winter Gather Bible Study, The Rev. Dr. Kathryn Kleinhans is Dean of Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital University, Columbus, OH. Ordained in the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches (predecessor of the ELCA) in 1985, her first call was in Atlanta, GA. Kit holds a B.A. in Theology from Valparaiso University, an M.Div. from Christ Seminary – Seminex, and a Ph.D in Theological Studies from Emory University. She will be sharing her early experiences as a ‘woman with a collar’ in the Lutheran church and leading us in “Vocation and Calling” from the Gather magazine. Kit was also our presenter in 2017 when she was the author of the Winter Gather Bible Study on Galatians.
