Yesterday, July 31, New Brunswick Seminary feted Renee House on her 25 years of service to the seminary and as she leaves the post of dean. It was appropriately an in-house event since she has been so much a part of the life of the seminary — and the seminary part of her life. Her service as librarian continues to reverberate and her time as dean (twice!) has served the seminary very well.
In this post, I want to acknowledge her service to the church. She is a General Synod Professor and served (serves) the church in a variety of ways. But as professor at the seminary, she inspires, encourages, guides, teaches class after class of students as they prepare for ministry in the church. Her reach extends far beyond the seminary.
She will continue a relationship with the seminary as she continues to teach. But thanks Renee, for your service to the church!
