“Truly God is in this place! The place of transition. Whether we stay or leave, we are never alone. We are washed in ‘love’s baptismal river’ and belong to God. Forever.”

In her final post on her Practicing Reconciliation blog, Sara Wenger Shenk, Ed.D., reflects on the question, “What does it mean to leave well?,” after her nine-year term as AMBS president. Sara retired from service in this role at the close of the 2018–19 academic year, June 30, 2019.

Since beginning in the fall of 2010, Wenger Shenk has provided strong direction for the seminary’s future and skillful facilitation when faced with challenging situations, including times of upheaval in higher education, in theological schools and in the church.
