Beginnings

Genuine beginnings begin within us,

even when they are brought to our attention

by external opportunities. ~ William Throsby Bridges

 

I am about to do a new thing;

now it springs forth,

do you not perceive it?

I will make a way in the wilderness

and rivers in the desert. ~ Isaiah 43:19

 

Welcome to the School Year!

Some of you are returning to work on or complete a degree, others are just at the beginning of your program. But all of us are at the beginning of this school year and the fall term Any transition brings with it challenges, grief, and celebration. It is my prayer for you that the joy outweighs the hardship. I also pray as the new school year begins in addition to learning new things in the classroom, meeting new people and taking full advantage of the scholastic opportunities offered here, you will also take the time to explore the beginnings within, the unexpected “new things” God might be doing within you in and through and beyond all the classes, relationships and experiences you will be having this year. Truly each one of you has something to offer than no one else can – just by being the best you possible. Seize this opportunity to grow!
