Michael Wiltshire is editor and author for Restoring Pangea.
Michael is an assistant pastor at Rose City, a Free Methodist church in Pasadena, CA. He also works as a research assistant at Fuller Theological Seminary’s PLPIT grant, a web-based resource for preachers who wish to integrate the sciences into their preaching. He holds a Master of Divinity (M.Div) from Fuller Theological Seminary (2016) and a B.S. from Cornerstone University, majoring in Biblical Studies and Youth Ministry.
Michael has also served as a full-time as a hospital chaplain, completing 1 Unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). While earning his B.S., he spent 3 years doing youth ministry in his hometown of Kalamazoo, MI. He has been a student leader in Fuller Seminary’s Faith and Science group and contributed as a planning member for InterSem, an interfaith conference for seminarians and educators.
Michael’s main interests are in pastoral care, practical theology, gender & social studies, spiritual formation, grief theory, and biblical studies. Authors he finds compelling include Henri Nouwen, Frederick Buechner, Anne Lamott, Lillian Daniel, Michael J. Gorman, Walter Brueggemann, and so many more. Some of Michael’s favorite classes at Fuller have been The 12 Steps and Spiritual Formation, Henri Nouwen: A Spirituality of Imperfection; Grief, Loss, Death, and Dying; World Religions; Sexuality and Ethics; and Pastoral Care and Abuse.
His hope for this next year of blogging is to challenge the conventional ethics and unchecked assumptions that we have attached to the vulnerable, the marginalized, and the forgotten by imagining and telling of healing theology.
