Facebook at this time is great. Our students are traveling. I end up browsing the images of this or that cross-cultural immersion. It is impressive. Students are around the world; they tell their stories and they provide their first impressions. It is good to see the impact that travel has on the soul. 

Facebook is also a tool for information. We all knew that the General Ordination Examinations were over; but it lovely to see the moment of celebration captured at the home of our Associate Dean - Bishop Jim Mathes. From time to time, romance flourishes on the campus. It is lovely to see our Senior Brooks Boylan announce his engagement to Sarah Stonesifer. And what a venue for a proposal - fireworks at Disney. Congratulations to them both. 

Social media matters. Thanks to Elizabeth Panox-Leach, we are working hard to get our presence right on social media. But for today, I just highlight the good news. In a world that often feels hard, it is good to highlight the "good news."
