I apologize to you that this has happened during finals week. None of us needed the additional stress right now.
To those of you who attend NewSpring, my complaint is not with you or the many other people who also attend. It is strictly with a set of staffers and insiders who seem to have lost their senses in dealing with me and my family. We have friends and neighbors who attend NewSpring that we continue to love and support.
If you’re worried that I might think less of you because you go the NewSpring, I don’t and I won’t. If you don’t believe me, then just don’t tell me. For most of you, I have no idea what church you attend, and our class discussions never make it necessary for us to reveal that kind of information about each other.
To my former students who work at NewSpring, I still love you guys and don’t want you to be shy about talking to me. You, more than most, know who I am beyond this blog. I understand if you don’t want to, but if any of you want to call or meet for coffee, I’d love to do that. In terms of what you do with media (the area we learned together), I am continually impressed with what you do.
To my current students, a lot of people will be asking me questions in the next couple of days. You can cut in line. If there’s anything that you want to ask me, come by my office and we can talk there, or maybe we can gather a few of us together at Java City.
Oh, and perhaps now you understand why I’m not a Twitter fan.
