Beautiful Things I Have Witnessed in the Last 24 Hours
- Some of my seminary friends choosing to wear their clerical collars as a reminder of God’s presence in the world and their willingness to listen to any stressed out citizens.
- My friend buying wine, grape, juice, and challah for 2 a.m. communion after the results were called.
- People gathering in our seminary chapel in a rainy morning to hug each other hard and sob openly during the service of mourning and high five the children who blessed us with their presence.
- My systematic theology teacher rescheduling our exam because she knew that everyone had been up until the wee hours waiting for the results and was probably in no place to sit through a three hour exam tonight.
