teacher should strive to make men think as he thinks, but
to lead them to the living Truth, to the Master Himself,
of whom alone they can learn anything, who will make them
in themselves know what is true by the very seeing of it."
-George MacDonald, Unspoken Sermons
Coming to Regent in August of 1984 was a pilgrimage; a pilgrimage with many worthwhile stops along the way, but none was the place to stay. At the time, some of the stops seemed permanent. Wanting to broaden my understanding of behavioral science, I received an M.A. in Human Development from the University of Chicago, worked in mental hospitals, and taught undergraduate courses for six years. I took the scenic route and completed a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology in 1969.
I worked for two years as International student advisor at the University of Georgia , three years as chief psychologist in a Christian Psychiatric hospital , seven years in private practice, three years in pastoral ministry and now for over twenty years at Regent. I came believing that my professional and personal growth is related to helping others grow professionally and personally in an honest context.
I am glad for the opportunity to pilgrimage with faculty and staff and students, to seek and to embrace Truth with like-minded pilgrims.
