[pullquote][/pullquote]This week we have taught a Doctor of Ministry class on “Vocational Renewal.” Our Biblical areas of concern for renewal for the “second half” of ministry have included:
• Reconnecting with your Sacred Encounter
• Reaffirming your Divine Calling
• Renewing your Passion for the Priority of the Sacred Word
• Recommitting your Life to the Sacred Mission
I send a special thank you to the hard-working Doctor of Ministry students from the U.S. Army’s 3rd MEDCOM who have put up with your professor this week. I was particularly impressed with your team research and the doctoral seminars you led on everything from the vocational issues of Rev’d Dr John Polkinghorne to the influence of sacred encounter of St Augustine in his later theological debates.
These modular intensive courses can be challenging. Great work!
The Lord bless you as you go forward in your studies. It was my honor to be with you for these few days in May.
