save the last latte for me: an evening update

So the Thurs-day also marked not only my last latte-frothed class, but an evening staff/student barbeque. This included a farewell to me. Previous students I had taught were invited. (Some showed. You know who you are/are not! 🙂 )

A few speeches of thanks. Regret that I was going. Reflection on my impact on student lives. Naming of my unique “hole” – a creative thinker who offered whole-bodied educational experiences (other wise known as lectures!)

And a lovely, unexpected, gift – a koru, framed in native rimu timber. A Kiwi symbol of new beginnings. With the prayerful hope, that my move to Adelaide, while Laidlaw’s loss, may truly become a new beginning for Taylor’s and an expression of God’s missional purposes in Adelaide.

No latte, but a lovely ending. Thanks Laidlaw.
