October 22, 2006 Guest - John Vannorsdall
Program: A Theological ABC

The Rev. Dr. John VannorsdallThe Rev. Dr. John Vannorsdall is a retired ELCA pastor whose last call was to the presidency of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He previously served as University Chaplain at Yale, College Chaplain at Gettysburg (where Bishop Knoche was a five-year partner), Campus Pastor at Cornell, and as the pastor of two congregations.

With thanks to the U.S. Navy, he graduated with honors from Harvard and received his Master of Divinity degree from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He was a preacher on "The Protestant Radio Hour" from 1976 to 1990, and his published writings include three books and more than a hundred articles. Gettysburg College and Susquehanna University have honored him with degrees.

Service on the local school board and some writing and lecturing take whatever time is unused by the upkeep on the rural Massachusetts home where John and his wife, Patricia, now live.
