The word community has had many different meanings for how we as humanity view the places we reside, work or celebrate. Last Sunday, the LSTC community as a whole came to Rockefeller Chapel to celebrate another brother in Christ welcomed into our community.
Yet as we have heard through conversations whether it be in small groups or sharing through social media, that the sacred community that enfolds and embraces Seminary Life is rapidly diminishing. Perhaps those who are discerning their call to ordination, lay or academic teaching have not had the opportunity to experience how enriching Seminary community can be for us, especially as students.
I thought I would share some snapshots over the years that I have resided here now as my mood turns reflective in the midst of preparing for Internship.
Seminary is something that you must experience, and if possible immersed in the playful and thoughtful daily life among other children of God.
Lape Bondye, God's Peace.
