Preparing for a New Semester

Late last week I drove onto campus, still quiet before the rush of returning students, and walked to each of my assigned classrooms.  I turned on the lights and sat down at the front desk in each room, scanning the empty seats in front of me.  Then, I read my rosters aloud, calling out the name of each student one at a time, praying a blessing over each.

We'll be sharing the next sixteen weeks together, and this is the finest way to prepare for our shared semester ahead.

  1. How beautiful. I teach piano and it often occurs to me that my purpose in my students' lives is of so much more than a teacher. My teacher was (and still is) for me. What a great way to start the term!
