      • This panel will explore the ways in which union does not require uniformity or the minimization of distinctive identities. Unity-in-difference is a foundational principle in Christianity, informing the daring conviction that differences can be complementary rather than oppositional. We will consider the mutually enriching complementarities of Lancaster Theological Seminary and Moravian Theological Seminary as the two institutions move into a common future, strengthened by the unique gifts that each institution can offer each other.
      • Panelists include:
        • Dr. Lee Barrett, Mary B. and Henry P. Stager Professor of Theology, Lancaster Theological Seminary
        • Rev. Dr. C. Riddick Weber, Director, Master of Arts in Theological Studies, Moravian Theological Seminary
