Sojourners Writes about Hartford Seminary Plan to Change Name

The nationally distributed magazine Sojourners published an interview on Oct. 6 with President Joel N. Lohr focused on Hartford Seminary’s plan to change its name and logo.

The article, “That Doesn’t Sound Like a Seminary,” is primarily a Q&A between President Lohr and Mitchell Atencio, assistant news editor at Sojourners, which covers faith, culture and politics.

Among other topics, President Lohr addresses:

  • Why Hartford Seminary felt it was necessary to rebrand
  • How long a name change had been considered
  • How much the change is related to the increasing number of people reluctant to identify with a specific religious identity
  • How an older model of seminary education is not sustainable long-term
  • And how the landscape of theological education is changing
