Dr. Kyle Schiefelbein-Guerrero is a lay leader in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Prior to coming to ULS, he served as Senior Adjunct of Liturgical and Theological Studies at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, and Director of Digital Learning and Lecturer in Theology and Educational Technology at Graduate Theological Union, both in Berkeley, CA. His dissertation was entitled “Sin and Brokenness, Passage and Purpose: Reforms in Recent American Lutheran Rites for the Pastoral Care of the Sick.”
For him, the classroom (residential and online) is the place of bringing the historical tradition and contemporary realities into constructive conversation and mutual critique. He brings his own historical, theological, and liturgical lenses regarding power and gender to bear upon the discovering, formulating, utilizing and questioning inherent in all teaching and learning. In every subject, students are formed to be out in the world, drawing upon their experiences with the material and with one another, for the common good and the proclamation of the Gospel.
His current academic research interests include liturgical history and theology, the intersection of ritual and pastoral care, digital theology and liturgy, and sacramental ministry. He currently serves as co-editor of the journal Teaching Theology & Religion. He is convener of the Lutheran caucus of the North American Academy of Liturgy, an active member of the American Academy of Religion, and a board member of Journey to Baptismal Living: North American Association for the Catechumenate.
Plus numerous liturgical texts in Sundays and Seasons throughout the years.
