Ain’t that the truth, sister?
The candidate must be committed both personally and professionally to the mission and purpose of Christian higher education.

It was February or October
It was July
I remember it so clear
You don’t have to pursue anything ever again
You just have to stand there
looking out on the water
in your trench coat of solitude
with your scarf of resignation
lifting in the wind.
And the fortune cookie too
which offers you the pleasure of Breakage
and then the other pleasure of Discovery,
extracting and reading the little strip of paper
with a happiness that you maybe conceal,
the way the child you once were
is even now concealed inside you.
