Beginnings and endings

Yesterday was commencement at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. This year's MDiv graduates started their studies the same year I started working at LTSP. It was wonderful to see them complete their degrees, but I will miss them!

Every year at a seminary brings a new group of students. Young ones. Older ones. People with stories and dreams. Wishes and fears. When summer comes the campus gets quiet and I wait for them all to come back in the fall. It is starting to get quieter at school...

Seeing a class from start to finish has been a wonderful thing, but let me say one more time, I will miss them.

I'm at LTSG and it's hard enough to see the Middlers become interns and leave and the Seniors leave for their first calls. Some of my closest friends are among those two classes. I just completed my first year.

What is happening with your call now that Augsburg has closed the bookstores?
