I have had the privilege of working at Ashland Theological Seminary as Administrative Assistant in the office of Advancement and Alumni Relations since October 1995. During that time, I have seen a lot of changes and have made a lot of friends, with one of my treasured friends being Dr. Luke L. Keefer. I kind of feel like the ATS historian around here as Luke was a well-known historian on the church.
I recently had the privilege to speak in the ATS chapel. One thing I noted in my message is the importance of remembering those teachings and practices which were passed on to us over the centuries. In Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians, he calls these teachings/practices “traditions.”
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. 2 Thessalonians 2:15
This sermon was preached by Amy Davies during our Seminary Chapel on Wednesday April 22, 2015.
Mrs. Davies is a wife and mother of two beautiful children. She lived in Wales, United Kingdom for 10 years. She is currently a student in our Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation program and will be graduating from Ashland Theological Seminary on May 16.
I know that this opening statement will reveal me for the shallow man that I have seemingly become, but lately I have wondered how society ever lived without a DVR! While TV watching has never been something that occupied a great deal of my time, my wife and I have found ourselves spending a quiet evening together “catching up” on a very few shows that have become favorites. Rarely do we watch them when they are really on, which gives us to opportunity to watch them much quicker – because we are able to fast forward all……and I do mean ALL the commercials.
