Allow me to introduce you to . . .
Greetings to the Worship Seminar Group (RELI 3123) AND to a special group of ministers who are following the Worship Seminar at Lindsey Wilson College. The purpose of this site is to offer an occasional interaction for ministers and the students in our seminar as we encounter a variety of topics through our course readings. Ministers, we invite you to read the post at the bottom of this page, "Welcome to Common Meter," as an introduction to our journey. And, speaking of "introductions" . . . Please allow me to introduce you to each other!
(Shockingly, in her lengthy description of proper introductory etiquette, Amy Vanderbilt did not provide guidance on how to make introductions via a blog! Therefore, we shall set the standard that will blaze the trail for all future generations! By following the directions below, let's randomly mix together student and minister introductions.)
Students, it is an honor for me to work with you this semester. We have already discovered that we have an amazing group of people in our seminar and that our discussions in class will be rich and rewarding. Add to this some very real-world ministry insights from our guests, and the understanding you gain is even deeper. Please introduce yourself by sharing your name, where you are from, your course of study at LWC, and something uniquely interesting about yourself.
Ministers, it has been a blessing to connect with you and bring Lindsey Wilson College to you and your congregation. You will receive fresh perspectives from our students and find new ideas for your current ministry. Please share your name, where you serve, and something uniquely interesting about yourself!
Great to have the honor of introducing you! I trust that even the Amy Vanderbilt's of the introductory-etiquette-world would approve of our approach!
Soli Deo Gloria,
