Asked Wednesday about the work that’s making her come alive, the Rev. Gini Norris-Lane, executive director of UKirk Campus Ministries in the Presbyterian Mission Agency, said it’s that “there are college students on campuses around the country that are craving community.”
“May God grant you the perfect darkness that you may find rest that soothes your creaking soul,” writes the Rev. Shelli Latham, the president of Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation for d365.org, an online youth-centered devotional. “May God grant you the perfect light that you may see clearly the truths of your life and the path the Spirit lays before you,” Latham wrote for “Journey to the Cross,” the special season of d365, an online devotional and app that appeals to youth and young adults.
The pandemic taught the Rev. Rachel Penmore to pay closer attention to “the smaller pieces” of campus ministry.
“What makes me come alive is when people feel known, when I’m interacting with students or other folks and they feel seen and heard and known,” said Penmore, the director of campus ministry at UKirk at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Penmore was a recent guest of the Rev. Dr. Lee Hinson-Hasty, senior director for Theological Education Funds Development for the Committee on Theological Education of the PC(USA) and the Presbyterian Foundation, during his “Leading Theologically” broadcast, which can be seen here.
