"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12-14 NIV

ALUMNA WOWS CHAPEL AUDIENCE
Kathy Nimmer '91 brought an insight to Trinity Christian College on Friday, February 2, that left a chapel audience virtually speechless. She quoted from her new book, "Minutes in the Dark, Eternity in the Light" and described in moving detail what it was like to gradually lose sight. Nimmer opened her speech with a poem that recalled the memory of a painful moment in her youth - the day she failed an eye test at school. She was in the second grade when her rare retinal degenerative disease was diagnosed. For more, see our Web site at: tcc.trnty.edu/new/archive/020707a/

ATHLETICS HALL OF FAME INDUCTS INAUGURAL CLASS
The Trinity Christian College Athletics Hall of Fame opened its doors for its inaugural class on February 3, when six individuals were inducted at a luncheon on campus. The six inductees' involvement with Trinity athletics spanned nearly 30 years. "This event turned out to be a great start for the Hall of Fame," said Jeff Raymond, athletics director. "The inductees were involved in a variety of sports and boasted a long list of accomplishments. It was interesting to listen to their stories and encouraging hearing how Trinity and their participation in athletics played a part in shaping their lives."

COMFORT
The work of a Trinity Christian College faculty member is reaching a wider audience. The essay Comfort by English professor Dr. Michael Vander Weele '73 originally appeared in the August/September issues of Perspectives: A Journal of Reformed Thought. A short time later, another version of it appeared in Speaking of Pastors: Parishioners Tell Their Stories, edited by James Schaap. One of the leading Lutheran writers of our time, Martin Marty, recently introduced and excerpted the essay in the December issue of Context magazine.

MEDICAL MISSIONARIES
Three former Trinity students are marveling at the providence of God.
