German mystic, Meister Eckhart, is credited with saying, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is, ‘thank you,’ it will be enough.” Another mystic, Gregory Mobley, is credited with saying, “Don’t just say prayers. BE prayers. Be living prayers.” The faculty, staff, and students of Andover Newton are living prayers of gratitude for you. Thank you. Thank you for your devotion to the Christian gospel and to Andover Newton.

The Impact of Endowing Scholarships…

I gave to Andover Newton Seminary because I’m excited about the future of our beloved school.  We all know that we’re living during a time of seismic changes in the Church.  Andover Newton is responding to these changes head-on, ensuring that our donations help provide a quality education for future clergy.  Giving back to the Seminary that formed me so well for ministry is an honor.” Lauren Lorincz (MDiv ’10), pastor of Colchester Federated Church, Colchester, CT
