April 28, 2017 – Faculty Presenter: May Burt Persaud

This year marks the completion of 30 years of May’s service as Instructor in Biblical Languages  at Wartburg Theological Seminary. May’s passion for the Bible and for Bible instruction is no happenstance. Named for her maternal Grandmother May (who was named for the month her parents were married) and walking in the footsteps not only of her Grandmother May but also her mother Dorothy, both revered teachers of the Bible, May feels she has been blessed to bear a name that bespeaks her calling. In whatever setting she teaches, May brings a passion for Scripture and a desire to invite students to encounter and ponder the biblical text and its message for us today. As a teacher, this is at the center of her calling as a disciple and servant of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Summer Journeys with Matthew through Ordinary Time.

Clergy will work with May.  Laity will work with WTS final-year student.
