My time at Western Theological Seminary was a time of growth and life learning. I came across this page recently and it took me back to those amazing memories. https://www.westernsem.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/2015-June-v.18-no.1.pdf
Not only was I able to steep in genuine spirituality of seminary, but I was exposed to learnings of original text Hebrew and Greek scripture. Most importantly, I was able to spend the last year of my mother's life with her. Following complications from open heart surgery she transitioned into a long-term care/hospice setting in a "greenhouse." My focus on pastoral care grew through this time. She developed great friends and I shared those precious moments with her through her last days. God shows up in amazing ways!
