Letter to ABSW Students

At the End of the Semester

by President Jim Brenneman

May 8, 2020

Dear ABSW Students,

Greetings to you, my beloved students and soon-to-be graduates.

You are at that peculiar time of the semester when the 2P’s of life are in mortal combat: Procrastination and Perseverance. For some of you, the outcome of this battle means the difference between graduating on time or not! The stakes are high.

I would encourage you to listen to the TEDTalk by Tim Urban in which he takes you inside the mind of a super procrastinator. I, for one, am writing to say to you, “You can do this!” Likewise, the Apostle Paul gives words of encouragement in his letter to the Romans (12:9-13): “to hold fast, be ardent, be patient, and persevere!” Or, as President Roosevelt once said at the height of WWII, “Tie a knot to the end of the rope and hold on.” Whatever you do: Hold on! Don’t quit!

Are you interested in a represenative from ABSW preaching or presenting at your church?

Rev. Dr. James E. Brenneman, President
Rev. Dr. Lori D. Spears, VP of Institutional Advancement
Rev. Dr. LeAnn Flesher, VP of Academics & Professor
Rev. Niger Woodruff, Director of Admissions
