Ferguson, New York, Cleveland, and Beyond: Our Christian Response Ashland, Ohio- Recent events in our country have caused grave concern for many, including those of us at Ashland Theological Seminary (ATS), and call for a response. Because of the scriptural witness and gospel mandate, ATS is committed to doing justice and to showing respect for all persons as God’s image bearers and as people for whom Christ died. We understand justice to be the work of repairing what has been broken by human sin, reconciling persons to God and one another, and restoring the conditions in which humans live for their own flourishing and the common good. We believe that the reign of God requires justice for all. Scripture demonstrates that God cares deeply about the wellbeing of the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized members of society and that God calls his followers to do the same. As an institution, ATS has a particular concern for racial justice and for the full equality of women in leadership and ministry.
