Campbell University Divinity School Part 2
Campbell University (Click for larger Picture)
We spent some time on Thursday back at Campbell. We remembered the camera this time, so we took a couple pictures. We also spent some time looking around the area, looking at housing options, and visiting with another student.
The highlights of the day was talking to one of the students, Chad. We spent about 45 minutes with him, and we think we really got an accurate picture of the school. He was a transfer from Southwestern (big move both geographically and theologically) and compared the education he was receiving at Campbell very favorably with the education he was receiving at Campbell. Everyone at Campbell treated us very well, and we really appreciate the time they spent with us. There was a great sense of community at Campbell, which is something Gay and I have placed a high priority on when visiting different schools.
One of my concerns has been that Gay and I would make different decisions at the end of this trip. On our way from Campbell to Wake Forest yesterday we talked a lot about everything we have seen so far. Thankfully, we are both on the same page. We still both feel that we are being led to Brite, but we also know that we don't have to make this decision immediately. We still have plenty of time for more prayer and discussion, and we know that we will end up right where God wants us to be.
It has been raining all day today in Winston-Salem, so we haven't been able to do very much. We have explored a few housing options, but mostly from the dry of our Hotel room. Our Wake Forest visit is scheduled for tomorrow, and we are heading home tomorrow night, so I probably won't post about Wake Forest until Sunday. (BTW, this is Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, not Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. This has been a point of confusion for a whole bunch of people, so I thought I would post a clarification.)
We appreciate everyone's prayer and support while we have been on our trip. We both feel blessed to have been able to take this trip together, because we both realize that we are partners in this new endeavor.
