A Resolution to Find Joy

On Thursday morning, I was faced with a rather subdued crowd in Fuller Hall. The weather had been messy again, and what had promised to be a snow day had devolved into merely another late start. Combined with the cold grayness outside, the winter sniffles had many people feeling down, and others were struggling with family illness or personal problems. To be honest, I could relate to all of that. In addressing those gathered in Fuller, I harkened back to my first Chapel Talk of the school year. In that talk, I spoke about becoming better people—people of greater education, enlightenment, and good character—and I shared my personal resolutions for the new school year, one of which was to find joy each day. Standing on stage before about 800 less-than-joyful people, I had a heavy lift if I was to raise up joy in the moment.
