Tonight we celebrated the beginning of a new school year with a Coram Deo at SSU.
Good friend and GreatHeart Joel Mason led and planned the night this time instead of me, with myself and Holli Durost additionally leading. Matt Frise played violin – a rich gathering. Candlelight, songs new and old, liturgies new and old, and images – all toward an evening of centering on God as the school year begins.
Each student could receive communion and be prayed for by a professor. As well, each student placed a small stone in a shared basin representing their willingness to follow God and throw their lot in with this community over the course of the year.
It was a lovely night.
