Dear Friends,

The Seminary is within a few short weeks of the end of Academic Year 2010-2011, and we have mixed emotions as we prepare for Commencement. We are sad as we say farewell to what is simply an extraordinary class of graduating Seniors, but we are filled with hope as we imagine their contributions in wider fields of vocation and service. As is always the case in this season of time, we will gradually shift our focus to a thrilling new entering class coming our way in late August and will be reminded that always we are beginning again. It is so gratifying to remember that we are always in partnership with you all. Enjoy the update in this edition of The Reed, and remember that "the church in this place greets the church in yours."

Faithfully, Ted
