During chapel Oct. 24, second-year Master of Divinity (M.Div.) student Alex Smith was recognized as the recipient of The Rev. David V. and Judith Dissen Excellence in the Study of the Lutheran Confessions (Book of Concord) Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is awarded to an M.Div. or Residential Alternate Route (RAR) student in his second year or later who has a GPA of at least 3.5, demonstrates a “quia” subscription to the Lutheran Confessions, and confesses that Holy Scripture is the “norma Normans” of our Christian doctrine, faith and life, and that the Holy Scriptures are indeed inspired, inerrant and infallible. Congratulations, Alex!
