My first new student orientation for the fall semester–at
Virginia Theological Seminary–took place yesterday. The students
were attentive and enthusiastic.
For the first time I heard the humorous
presentation by Drs. Cook and Lewis of the joys [and perils] of the study
of Greek or Hebrew that the students were to begin today.
Dr. Amy Dyer gave her usual lucid presentation
on academic matters that everyone needs to know.
I was happy to meet Dr. Ian Markham, the new Dean and
President of VTS. He brings great energy to his new position.
For me, summer is now over–and there are many opportunities
to see old friends and meet new ones.
