Since January, I’ve had the privilege of supervising Maria Bjordal in her field education project at Fuller Seminary. Yesterday was our last meeting. I hate saying “Good-bye.” It SUCKS! I have thoroughly enjoyed our weekly meetings and will miss Maria and our discussions. Maria is a bright, reflective go-getter and I have been challenged to be a better pastor and leader through our times together.
Also, since April, I’ve had the honor of supervising Mickey McGavock in his field education project. He’s also bright and fortunately, I don’t have to say good-bye to him until the end of this year. His project is in the area of worship, so I’m loving our conversations. He’s got a brilliant mind and a great heart and it’s a joy watching him explore his pastoral calling.
Both Maria and MIckey (and my friend JR, whom I’ve mentioned before) are members of an organic faith community in Pasadena.

If these young people are representative of the quality of people Fuller Seminary is attracting and producing, then I have great hope for God’s people! I love meeting with them, hearing their ideas and being challenged by their lives and ministries.
