More than practice: pastoring practicum builds real-world connections

“Even in the first week, I’ve seen God work in so many ways this semester, and it has been such a blessing,” said Hector Melendez, student pastor for Maplewood Academy and the Hutchinson church in Minnesota. “We had a spiritual retreat with the academy, and God poured Himself out. For five hours these students just studied the Bible. We gave them the opportunity to leave, but they wanted to stay, and we were all just bombarded with Jesus. That’s the kind of event that has had a year-long effect on these kids.”

ForeSight: Charlie and Naoma Henkelmann

Anna Romuald: Social media ministry

“We spend so little time together on Sabbath, it doesn’t feel like enough time for me to disciple and mentor the youth I work with,” said Anna Romuald ’12, assistant pastor at the Southview Adventist Church in Minneapolis and assistant young adult ministries director for the Minnesota Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. “Using social media, I can spend quality time communicating one-on-one to help spiritually disciple them.”
 

Jeff Peterson: Building lifelong connections

The connections you make in college often shape the rest of your life. Union College alumnus Jeff Peterson is proof of that.

Staying connected before Facebook

For many Unionites, the friendships formed during their  time in Lincoln turned out to be something worth holding on to for the rest of their lives. Before Facebook, Twitter and cell phones, classmates had to find creative ways to stay in touch as they spread out across the country and the world. 

The Laundry Letter

Connecting through tragedy

A field of tall grass. A tree. An indescribably peaceful feeling. A bright light flashed in the sky. Suddenly, an EMT is holding his head, shouting his name. Spinning red strobes. Rough asphalt cradled him in an unforgiving embrace. Blood. His connection to life tenuous, he slipped back and forth between consciousness and unconsciousness.

“I really like our theme: one team, one focus,” said Cindy Spaulding ’92, assistant coach of the Union College gymnastics team since 1988. “To me, we’re always going to be one team no matter which year it is. If we’re all one team and always keep Christ at the center of our lives, everything is going to be fine.”
 

Editorial: Why do we connect?

As I write this, I am looking forward to having a wonderful time with friends and colleagues at our annual employee Christmas party. Events like this are an important part of forging a community. Even the ancient philosopher Plato advised communities to eat together, going so far as to recommend communal meals be a constitutional requirement for cities.

For Sue Krueger, Union College runs in the family. “It seems like we’ve had family attending there forever,” said the 1954 alumnus who now has two grandchildren enrolled. “I got my husband, Calvin, at Union.

All my children attended. We have a long history at Union.”
