"To all our students, we say welcome!" Campus Pastor Chris Maxwell says. "To all our readers, we want you to feel important where you work, study, learn, and live. On this day in August – whatever your job, your mood, your journey, your story – please realize that you are important.
"Be a student for life. Continue learning and letting your mind expand. Continue pursuing goals and hopes and wishes. Continue considering life together rather than in isolation. Continue realizing that this moment – this very moment right now – is important. Don’t miss it!" (click for full article).
