Through Advent, these reflections will be posted every Friday, so ... close your eyes, breathe, read, reflect, and return every week.

Tomorrow in Chapel we will gather for song, scripture, and reflection on the season. Seminary Chapel is at 11am on Tuesdays and Thursday in Martin Chapel. All are welcome.

Two theme houses on campus offer juniors and seniors a way to connect with underclassman and with those who share similar interests. They are not new to EMU though - check out the photos from the 70's intentional living spaces with faculty families and students.

Today’s spotlight shines a bright light on Lisa Reo. Lisa found her way to the MAC program with a master’s degree in psychology and many years of experience in hand to pursue licensure as an LPC. She completed her practicum and is currently interning at the Mary Ainsworth Attachment Clinic affiliated with the University of Virginia where she works with children and families. Lisa is passionately committed to facilitating their wellness and more secure relational connections. Lisa brings a quiet and observing presence, a warm laugh and whimsical contributions to her work in our program. She is quick to support her colleagues in their shining moments and conveys intention and care in her academic work. Here’s to you, Lisa! Thank you for all the important work you do in the world!

"In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. All went to their own towns to be registered. Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child." - Luke 2:1-5 #formationfriday #advent #Christmas

Faculty and staff gathered in the Campus Center to help out undergrad admissions by penning a few congratulatory notes to admitted students and encouraging them in their college selection. It was fun to share things that we appreciate about EMU with prospective students; the holiday music, snacks, large screen TV fireplace and cheer set just the right tone!

We’ve asked EMS students to tell us their favorite Christmas hymns and share why they love them. 3rd year MDiv student Andrea Yoder shared that one of hers is “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” in its full form. “I'm loving this song right now because it starts out with, "Come, Thou long expected Jesus" - articulating our collective (and my personal) sense of waiting and longing for Jesus to make his presence known among us. In the middle of the song it switches to naming the ways that Jesus' presence has already been made known (starting with O’er the hills the angels singing news, glad tidings of a birth; “Go to him, your praises bringing; Christ the Lord has come to earth.”). I have to be on the look-out for the ways that God is already at work in and through the people around me...in and through even me...in and through even my enemies. I love this song right now because of how often I've recently thought, "Come quickly Lord Jesus."
