Yesterday was an important day. The national calendar of the United States has this important moment where we recognize the work that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. started and that we must progress. It is a moment when we are invited to examine our history as a nation and acknowledge the evil of slavery and segregation and then commit to continuing the work of civil rights that seeks to enable us to become a nation that truly honors all people.
The gift of the Seminary is the opportunity to enjoy the many spaces that are intended for deep, sharing, and intimate conversations. It could be lunch or the Flamingo or a Common Room in a residence hall or 1823 or just a walk around the Grove. This is the space where we are invited into each other’s worlds. Having a diverse group of friends is the Gospel way of learning about the experiences of each other.
