Graduate Randy Bostic Sept. 2012 Letter
A New Beginning
“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be . . . It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.”
As we begin the 122nd academic year at Lipscomb University, I am reminded of the above quote by C.S. Lewis. I am reminded of this quote because I see the College of Business, the University, and the entire Lipscomb community focusing on Christ.
So many men and women in the Lipscomb community have lived as powerful Christ like examples in their personal lives and have shared their examples with the students on this campus. I am lucky to see this everyday. Throughout the summer, the faculty, staff and administration have been making plans and preparing for this upcoming school year and the school years to come. The plans have certainly been made to create an atmosphere for academic success but they have also been made to help each member of our community know God better and allow him to take over our lives.
As a community and as a college of business we are focusing on Christ and the personality we are sharing with our friends and neighbors in Nashville and around the world is truly a personality all our own. God has blessed us with new faculty members, new staff and many new students in all our programs. The College of Business is prepared to continue important conversation on ethical issues in the boardroom, to send qualified students around the world ready for new challenges, and to be a light in the business community.
Every New Year is special and comes with new challenges and excitement, but this year there is a sense of a bigger purpose and a larger calling. May God grant us the strength to share our true personality with everyone we have contact with throughout the world.
We look forward to seeing you on campus and sharing our personality with you. May God bless you and your family. Please let us know how we might serve you.
