Bergquist honored

In February, retired ELCA pastor James Bergquist was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Serampore, a Calcutta institution that bestows theological degrees from 90 Christian seminaries in India.

Bergquist spoke at the graduation, addressing 1,500 graduates. Bergquist, who served as a missionary in India early in his career, is the retired president of Trinity Lutheran College, Seattle (now in Everett, Wash.).

For the last 10 years, he has been a visiting professor at seminaries in Hong Kong and India.
