Sarah Pulliam Bailey with Christianity Today recently interviewed Wheaton’s incoming President, Philip Ryken. As a Baylor alum, I must say I’m a little more thrilled with their news than ours. Here’s a notable quote from Ryken in response to a question on how he will devote his energy at Wheaton:
One thing that I told the presidential selection committee that I want to cultivate campus-wide is a community of grace. I believe that true excellence, whether in academics or in other areas, is best inspired by a deep awareness of God’s love for us in Christ. I want to live and serve with a deep awareness of that in my own life and seek to cultivate it in whatever Christian community I belong to, and that now includes in a very intentional way Wheaton College.
May it be! Read the rest of the interview here.
