Dear College Community,
"...God rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done." In the second chapter of Genesis, God models required and appropriate behavior for each of us! Known as Sabbath, the Creator of humanity affirms that rest and reflection is necessary for all of us to remain focused, energized and effective.
With Commencement activities for the academic year now behind us, a time of Sabbath has arrived for the students of Davis & Elkins. The campus is quieter and replacing the hustle and bustle of the semester is a conspicuously slower pace. (A practical advantage is that parking seems to be plentiful!) Like our lives, there are seasons to a campus community and times for the pace of life to accelerate or slow. The natural ebb and flow keeps life interesting, keeps us refreshed and rested, and enables us to appreciate the changes from one day to the next.
