It is my joy to write to you with magnolias and corylopsis abounding outside as I type.

The ministry, to me, was at times soothing and in another moment powerfully provocative. For all of this, I am so grateful.
There are some other “beautiful happenings” on campus, too, including our QuakerBooks partnership, Phil Gulley’s upcoming lecture, and the good feeling of having full programs. Read more
