Letter from the Editor
The excitement at the University has been building since spring, when a modest budget and a generous donation were set aside to re-establish the alumni magazine.
With our creative team and advisory council in place, we hunkered around the Board of Governors’ table with magazines one through 14 fanned out in their various shades and themes. Story ideas overflowed. One idea led to yet another and, in the dialogue, the theme for issue 15 surfaced: ‘redeeming the time.’
‘Redeeming the time’ asks us to contemplate what God is placing in our hands and to celebrate what He accomplishes through us — the alumni, faculty, and staff of a particular university, whose essence challenges its people to be there for the world. The stories within these pages are just some of the many narratives of lives lived toward that end.
In this issue, find out what ‘sanctified chutzpah’ means to President Raymond, explore the forefronts of research in faculty folio, and venture inside mysterious North Korea. And of course, catch up on all things alumni (pages 28-37).
Trinity Western will be published twice a year, fall and spring, with an expanded web version designed to add depth and breadth to the stories in these pages. Look for us online, and give us your feedback.
Finally, to all whose names have graced past mastheads of Trinity Western, to the talented editors, writers, photographers, illustrators, distribution coordinators, and designers who precede us, we salute you. We hope to carry on the award-winning legacy.
With that said, we give you issue 15.
