Crossing Thresholds The Making and Remaking of a 21st-Century College ChaplainAugust 12, 2015 By Collegeville Institute Lucy A. Forster-Smith Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2015 Visit this title on the publisher's website » With candor, passion, and deep love for her work, Lucy Forster-Smith takes us across the threshold as a chaplain on a college campus. This vocational narrative braids the story of her faith journey that began on a porch when she was a four-year-old, was shaken by a sexual assault as a seminarian, and through healing and grace brought her to claim a call to ministry with students. With delightful humor and an infectious love for her work, Forster-Smith invites the reader into her world. Crossing Thresholds is a theological narrative, weaving together the story of faith in the context of the professional life of a college chaplain. Lighting on the power of spiritual awakening at a college, once named as the number one institution of higher education that “ignored God on a regular basis,” Forster-Smith jars loose the assumptions about the avowedly secular campus. Her journey of healing and grace illuminates and guides to cross the threshold of the campus’s soul. Like this post? Subscribe to have new posts sent to you by email the same day they are posted.
