In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Gammon Theological Seminary communities gathered online to celebrate the accomplishments, impact, and perseverance of the Class of 2020.
On Tuesday event followed a digital celebration for Gammon graduates on May 12. Gammon conferred a total of 12 degrees this year, which included 11 Master of Divinity, 1 Doctor of Ministry degrees.
As we live in this current reality, we want to take time to recognize, honor, and celebrate you—the amazing students of the Class of 2020.”
We’ve seen the fruit of these gifts in our classrooms, in your contextual work, in worship, and in our daily exchanges—be it in the halls of this great seminary, or on Zoom calls. You have made an imprint on this school and we cherish it.
As we navigate through these unprecedented times, we want to remind you of the good that remains. Here at Gammon Theological Seminary we will continue to be the source for hope and support for the most vulnerable areas of our communities, as we adapt and change to ensure we keep our ministries running smoothly and safely as possible. We may not know what the coming hours, days, and weeks may bring, but we do know that your support will help us all get through and beyond this pandemic together.
With your support during this pandemic, we are able to keep students engaged through our online tutoring, stimulating activities, projects, and workshop empowerment through Zoom. Every dollar and every day counts. Your gift of any amount is greatly appreciated and will have an immediate impact on the people we serve
Sometimes challenging times expose emotional triggers. Many of us cope with those triggers differently, whether it’s avoidance, overindulgence or even anger.
The coping mechanism I’m most inclined to revert to is overworking. I throw myself so deeply into executing and achieving goals that I check off a list, one achievement after the next. I woke up early as usual, but this time I allowed myself an extended moment where I cried, I prayed, I worshiped, I gave God thanks and I embraced all THE FEELINGS. Then I got up, got dressed, put on a full face of make up with no where to go and adorned myself in my new fav tee from @ceoofmylife_ FAITH + HUSTLE.
Here’s your #nuggetfortoday Faith will take you places hustle can’t. In the midst of many uncertainties, I’m grateful for that assurance. Although, my hustle reaps results, FAITH sustains me, opens up both joy and doors beyond my imagination.
Family, we may not know what the future holds, what “normal” will look like after sheltering in place is over, or even if life as we once knew is even possible.
But we can choose, gratitude.
