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