From the President: The First Day of School
I've always loved the first day of school. The excitement of seeing old friends and meeting new ones. The mystery of entering into a new classroom and having a new teacher. The sheer "newness" of back-to-school clothes, fresh textbooks, and crisp, clean pieces of paper just waiting to be written on. I think that's what I loved best about the first day of school - it represented a new year filled with unlimited possibilities.In this issue you'll find other things new. You'll read about two of the first students in the MDiv Co-operative Model Program, about the new "Lutheran Confessions 2015," about a recent graduate in a new adventure in ministry, and the events which started this new - 150th Anniversary - year.
