North Park Theological Seminary Faculty Statement on Race and the Justice System

Covenant Quarterly


February 2015. Over recent months, the undersigned members of NPTS faculty have formulated the following statement in response to the debates in the nation concerning race and the justice system. We were moved to do so because of the tragic incidents in Ferguson and elsewhere, and we wished to add our own voices to others on the North Park campus and in the Evangelical Covenant Church calling for change. We also noted and supported the engagement of many of our own students in actions calling for just treatment for all. This statement is far from the first to be issued on this topic in the world of theological education, but we hope that to publish our statement now is all the more timely in a context where the media news cycle is gradually prioritizing other concerns and paying less attention to these matters.
