"The spiritual life begins with the acceptance of our wounded self. Whatever is denied cannot be healed."
- Brennan Manning

Wrap that around your minds for a minute. On another heavy note, my good friend and mentor Mike Stroud is leaving MTSU and headed out to the beautiful land of Beavers and Ducks (Oregon). He has spent 20 years in campus ministry, most at MTSU and has been a delight to that program. He portrays a selflessness that is rare among men and a passion that ignites those around him. So Mike, we salute you and your work here. May God bring numerous blessing to your family and your work in Oregon. Learn to fly-fish while your there. Aint nothing like grilled Halibut.
