I wish I could be in two places at once!
Wednesday, August 28, was the start of the academic year at Trinity, both on our main campus and at our new satellite location in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago. I was part of the Austin launch that even included an opportunity for me to introduce the Biblical worldview, foundational to a Trinity education and to these new students.
Knowing that many of Trinity’s earliest supporters were from the west side of Chicago (the four corners of Chicago’s Austin neighborhood, Berwyn, Cicero, and Oak Park), it was gratifying to see our partnership with By The Hand return to this area of the city. Then, obeying all speed limits, I drove back to campus and slipped into a back row seat for our opening Convocation ceremony.
I caught most of the address delivered by Professor of the Year Dr. Brad Breems and am thankful for his reminder that our work and callings are part of Christ’s call to have an impact on the world…just as voices called out 50 years ago–as Dr. Breems reminded us–for an end to racial injustice.
