Former ELCA Seminary Becoming a Muslim College
The former campus of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California is now becoming a Muslim college. The seminary moved from the top of a hill into the inner city of Berkeley a few years ago to allow students to get a better understanding of urban ministry. The move came about the time people stopped seeing California as a suburban mecca and saw the state more as a state with significant urban problems. Seminary officials are happy a spiritual group will be utilizing the old seminary buildings.
The seminary is now affiliated with California Lutheran University.
