Stretching to Grow

Being Stretched

Welcome to Multnomah University! You’re going to be stretched during your time here,” Dr. Lockwood challenged our students at this year’s spring convocation chapel.

Reflecting the Light of Christ

Light in a Dark Place

"Have you ever been in a very dark space... [where] you couldn't see anything?"

Multnomah's president Dr. Dan Lockwood began his spring 2012 Convocation Chapel address with a story about a trip to New Zealand with his daughter, Elise. Preparing for a black-water rafting excursion, Dr. Lockwood and Elise donned wetsuits, climbing harnesses, and headlamps. Then they proceeded to climb down a 150-foot shaft to a steep tunnel that led to an underground river where a rubber raft awaited them. After traveling a half mile down the river, their guide told them to turn off the headlamps.

Welcome, welcome, welcome... is something we have been saying a lot around here now that school is back in session. We finished up the last registration day on Thursday (8/21). Students finalized their paperwork, got their picture taken (twice!), and completed their class schedule.

Of course it didn't end there. Both Thursday (8/21) and all day Friday (8/22) students were moving into the dorms, buying books, and generally getting to know the campus and each other.

For those of us who have been on campus all summer, it is great to see students roaming around again.

Convocation Chapel was on Tuesday (8/26). This all school chapel was a good time to welcome new students. Staff and faculty prayed for the students, dedicating both the students and themselves to the learning and work that God has in store for them this school year. [Plus, it is a good opportunity for our faculty to don those cool robes.] (Convocation Chapel Program [PDF])
