In his most recent blog post Andover Newton Theological School President Martin Copenhaver evokes that possibility.
In my conversations with other presidents and deans it is clear they can easily relate to the challenges we face. They know it is a sad time in important ways as beloved staff members lose their jobs and as we move from a cherished campus that has been our home for almost two hundred years. They can also readily imagine that this is a demanding time in other ways, too. There is just a lot to do. They know, without needing to be told, that it can be a bit overwhelming at times.
As the improv performers say, “Yes, and…” All of that is true and there is something wonderfully exhilarating about this time in the life of our school. And “exhilarating” is just the word I want to use here.
