How many students work on their master of divinity and their martial arts at the same time?
It's definitely a balancing act for Miranda Hinrichs, a student at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., who won gold at the 2010 U.S. Open and the heavyweight sparring title at the 2010 U.S. Taekwondo Nationals in Orlando, Fla.
Hinrichs, known to her teammates as a "safe" person to talk with about God, told Luther's Story magazine that she hopes to help the church "be a safe place for people to ask questions."
She is on internship at East Koshkonong Lutheran Church, Cambridge, Wis.
