An amazing thing is happening today a couple of blocks from my office. It’s the process of starting the college experience for freshmen at George Fox University. In about 8 hours parents and students will be sitting on the lawn sharing prayers of dedication and then students will start building their dorm “family” and parents begin learning what it really means to let go of the reigns that have held that son or daughter close. “Lasting Impact” is the orientation theme. All that has happened in the freshman’s life before today will continue to have a lasting impact. The next four years will certainly have a lasting impact on the student and I trust that the experience will shape these students for a lifetime of significant influence on their expanding world.
