President Pearsall welcomed students back during our opening chapel. You can listen to this and any other chapel recording on the Spiritual Life website. Click on "Jan. 13, Opening Convocation: President Joel Pearsall" to listen to President Pearsall's message. This will give you a brief glimpse of what your students have the privilege of experiencing three times a week. He spoke about the problems with our failure to commit everything to God. That God’s rules for living are not designed to keep us from having fun, rather they are so that we will experience life in the way that he created for us to experience life. God’s promptings in our lives are the way in which he seeks to use us as his hands and feet—for our good and often for the good of others. God loves us and desires good for us. You will get to know Joel better and be glad you listened.
