Title: Sayonara To Dr. Sarah Hinlicky Wilson
Post by: Dave Likeness on August 25, 2018, 12:09:30 PM
The Fall Edition of the Lutheran Forum came with the news that Sarah Hinlicky Wilson has accepted
a call to a Lutheran  parish in Tokyo, Japan as their pastor.  As a result of that call she will be resigning
as Editor of the Lutheran Forum after the next edition.

She has become an articulate theologian and well-received  conference speaker across the globe.
Sarah received her Master of Divinity degree in 2003 from Princeton University as well as her Ph.D.
in 2008. She was a parish pastor in Trenton, New Jersey in those years. From 2008 to 2016,  she
was in Strasbourg, France at a Research Institute, and most recently in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Lord's blessings on her as she begins another chapter in her amazing life.  She and her husband
and their son will continue the journey  of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with our world.

Hard to imagine how anyone could come close to replacing her!

She was one of the best editors of LF at least since Glenn Stone. Although evangelical catholic, Hinlicky drew on other parts of American and world Lutheranism— and beyond. I enjoyed her articles on Lutheran-Pentecostal relations. She opened up the LF to the arts and culture. Sad to see her go.

I've had the pleasure of working with Sarah the past several years as an associate editor and she is even better behind the scenes. Personally, I know my writing has been made sharper, clearer, and more daring under her tutelage. There is no replacing Sarah Hinlicky Wilson, so I do not think the ALPB board will try. I'm excited to see what's next for Lutheran Forum!

Thanks for this.  I have appreciated the depth of field in selection of authors and topics/themes.  Working (blessedly) without a Doctrinal Review Commission, what is revealed is the lively and
 inherently engaging nature of Lutheran theology and theologians in a time of tumult where much of what passes for conversation is either conceding to the spirit of the age or just stringing together quotes from the long-deceased.

We who are on the Board of the ALPB regret that Sarah Hinlicky Wilson will no longer edit Lutheran Forum (after the next issue). She has done a splendid job, indeed.

We have some good writers on this forum. Perhaps one of you would like to apply to be the next editor. Send your resume to Board Vice President Pr. Steve Shipman <prsteveshipman@gmail.com>.

Peace, JOHN
Board President

 I am not looking for work. (And I now hear the collective sigh of relief from everyone on this modest forum.)  ;D

Charles, I was thinking of applying,
do you think subscribers
would go for a slight change in title
and a more substantial change
in content: 
"The Lutheran Forum of Poetry"? 
Right. 
I guess not. 
Though maybe we could get
more contributors
for 'um
than re-subscribers ...

Too bad for us. You might at least contribute an article now and then.   :)

Peace, JOHN

We do have a long history of carrying poetry in the Lutheran Forum.   :)

but for some reason, John, hasn't the poetry failed to appear in recent issues?

Good reason to submit yours. (You are right, except for consistently carrying hymnody.)

Peace. JOHN

Yes, good Lutheran theology, but Sarah was good at soliciting writers who looked at Lutheran culture and church life. Such realities don’t always line up with theologians’ pronouncements— for better or worse.

She will be sorely missed.
