“In the 21st century, we don’t need to travel 6,000 miles to meet others, ethnic others, racial others. We just need to open our doors or walk down the hall. We could do better to love our literal neighbors, those people closest to us.” – Dr. David Evans, EMS Assistant Professor of History and Missions at 2017 School for Leadership Training

Londen Wheeler was a senior at Eastern Mennonite University when he gave this speech at the 2016 conference, Leading into the common good: An Anabaptist Perspective.

RT @emu_wbb: Couldn't let today pass by without saying Happy Birthday to our favorite senior Jonae Guest!!! @jonae44 https://t.co/XZsuh8hJVr

Today’s spotlight shines a bright light on Dr. Cheree Hammond. Dr. Hammond is a stalwart advocate of social justice, celebrating her birthday weekend at the women’s march in DC. She has been a faithful member of the MAC program since the fall of 2010 and is known for her whimsical humor, playful engagement, steadfast mentoring, and scholarly contributions to the profession. Prior to coming to EMU, Dr. Hammond taught undergrad and grad courses for several years at JMU and worked as a clinician at Shenandoah Academy and the McNulty Center. Her clinical work has centered around working with underserved children. Some of you may not know that Dr. Hammond has a penchant for sweets and coffee, a love of fashion, a deep curiosity about culture and language and a heart of gold. (Correction: Dr. Hammond was not in a punk rock band — she was a punk rock band groupie in college.

As this week comes to a close, we reflect back on the worship experiences we had at School for Leadership Training. An ever present part of our worship services was the inclusion of an interactive art installation by 1st year MDiv student, Rebekah Nolt. Attendees were invited to engage the artwork in a variety of ways throughout our time together keeping in mind these words from Rebekah, “We are all beloved children of God. Though we are different, it is this common thread of belovedness that holds each diverse and beautiful piece in place. It is essential to understand ourselves, our voices, and what we bring to each space we find ourselves in without forgetting the thread that binds all together.” #formationfriday #SLT2017 #beloved
