Ethan just recently finished his pastoral internship at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Glenside, Pa. Ethan has also worked for the past two years as chaplain at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Ethan’s theology is deeply rooted in the Lutheran understanding of the Theology of the Cross. This theology reminds us that God is present with us throughout our lives.
