I never played organized football, but as an announcer of high school football games in Atlanta, I was a fan of the game. It was a joy to watch high school football players giving their best to win the game. The “two minute drill” was a critical time in every close game. A score by any means could be the difference between victory and defeat. In the last two minutes of the game, each team gives everything they have to insure victory. Nothing is held back. Everything is on the line.
Now, Gammon Theological Seminary is in the “TWO MINUTE DRILL”. Our 134th Founder’s Day Observance is upon us. We must give our very best to insure victory. Every detail must be meticulously cared for. Our staff has been working long and hard preparing for a productive experience. Also, our students have conscientiously given their best in moving us closer to the goal line for the winning score. I will always be grateful for their faithfulness in the “two minute drill”.
The Board of Trustees is challenged to make a Herculean decision in selecting our next President-Dean of Gammon. The Search Committee has prayerfully gone about their task of working to present the best qualified person to the Full Board for election. They too, are a part of the “two minute drill”.
The Founder’s Day Committee has been diligent in securing some of the brightest and best scholars/preachers as our presenters. They are also a part of our “two minute drill”.
The winning play for Gammon Theological Seminary is in the hands of our Alumni and Friends. These are the men and women who give their financial resources to help us recruit and retain our students. I thank God for every member of the team during our “TWO MINUTE DRILL”.
Therefore, I am going on record in declaring a last minute, come from behind victory.
May we never forget, however, that the real KEY TO OUR SUCCESS IS GOD.
