Reb JR

One of the blessing of living on campus is this new phenomenon that I have come to love the sight of...

Other men come to discuss things with JR. Theology, life... guy stuff... I don't know the half of it. But what I can tell is that JR is respected. (and not just because he was elected HUGSR SA president)

One student was telling me the other day while he and another guy were visiting during a break in a weekend class that "JR is attractive." :P He went on to say the reason is that JR un-apologetically states what he believes.

In our day and age where people are so afraid of offending others, people rarely actually stand for anything very strongly. But JR does. His theology is Reformed and he's going to a school where NO ONE else stands on the "Reformed" side of things. But the strength of his convictions pulls other people to him. They may not agree with him, but they listen and ask questions.

JR has always stood apart. At Plymouth College he was a strong voice for conservative politics in a very liberal setting. When he won my heart, it was with his ability to know what he wanted. (very manly, btw) :)

I warms my heart to see other scholars, men of God, and people preparing for lives in service of the Lord coming to JR and sharing their lives with him.

THIS is why we moved to campus.
