Happy New Year. Connections, seminars, reunions and more!
On behalf of the Tyndale family of students, faculty and staff - God’s best for you and your family in 2013.
Revelation 21:5 says: He who was seated on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
As the first month of the year, January symbolizes newness, beginnings and hope.
January is an important time at Tyndale. A new semester gives Tyndale students the opportunity to begin studies again; a chance to learn from a respected professor and the prospect of digging deeply into a subject you love.
In Revelation 21:5 the word “new” comes from the Greek word “Kaina” which means renewed or restored, and includes circumstances and conditions along with appearance.
As we move into the New Year, we look forward to the “new” opportunities ahead of us throughout 2013. On April 1st we “receive the keys” to our “new” Tyndale campus. Along with this, we look forward to opportunities, partnerships, courses and degree offerings. It is indeed a season of “newness.”
Our challenge is moving into this season with a newness of heart. God has promised to give us a newness that leads to creativity and a joy that spills over in all areas of our life. If ever we needed God’s newness in our lives and on our campus, it is now.
Please remember that we are praying for you - our family of Tyndale Alumni. May you live in the joy of Christ’s newness in you.
Blessings upon you,
Blessings upon you and your family this winter,
Rev. Dr. Rob Patterson
Director, Alumni & Church Relations
Linda Dixon [MDiv 1996] is an ordained Methodist minister with more than 15 years of urban and rural pastoral experience. After serving in South Eastern Ontario for many years, Linda and her husband decided to return to Toronto to provide greater support for his then ailing mother.It was upon their return two years ago that Linda became the Executive Director of Stonegate Ministry which sees Christian churches working together to serve poor, marginalized and disenfranchised people. This is a ministry that she is passionate about.
Linda and Glenn enjoy their children and now seven grandchildren. Her grandchildren laughingly describe her by singing the song “Little old lady from Pasedena”. This family joke started when Linda studied leadership at a Doctoral level at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. They particularly enjoy the chorus “Go Granny! Go Granny! Go Granny Go!!!”
