Here is my cohort.
There is something unifying about going to battle with people who are just as committed as you in accomplishing a goal. In this case, we are trying to receive a doctorate degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston. Even though we have lost some people along the way, it has been an awesome journey. After the grueling 3 years of classes, papers, projects, discussions, and presentations, I can confidently say it was worth the experience.
As we were saying our goodbyes, there was a sense that we really did experience something together that will be unique to us. I felt like we made some genuine friendships and life-long connections. For some reason I felt as if our paths will cross again.
I was just humbled to have had the privilege of meeting so many great men and women of God in the Lord’s work. God is going to use them for His Kingdom.
Thank you Lord for constantly bringing people in my life at various stages to teach me that building God’s Kingdom cannot be done alone – there are no mavericks in ministry. The journey is always better with comrades – and it is just more fun that way.
