    Congrats to Union. I was a student at Southern Seminary when Dr. Dockery was brought on as President and took a pretty good chunk of Southern's faculty with him.

    I was there then, too. My first semester was his last as dean of the Theology school.

    Our paths must have crossed then. I started in the Fall of 95. I had Hal Poe as a prof/mentor his last semester in the Billy Graham School before leaving and my wife (then fiance') was in Gushee's ethics class during that same time.

    UU Response

    Gentle:

    Truly 1995 was a good year. I graduated w/my MDiv from Southern in 1995 after having commuted from Memphis for the "Monday only" program for 2 semesters and one "J" term. I did about another 1/3 in residence at the UU campus in Jackson in the "Monday only" MDiv program. And I did about 1/3 at Harding Grad School of Religion (Churches of Christ Seminary) here in Memphis. I did it all while I was working full time and doing part-time ministry on the side.

    People asked me about: "What I bi-vocational?" I tell them no, it was more like "tri-vocational" for me.

    I feel like a UU alum although I am not. My daughter and my money went there as I did. So it seem like I have a vested interest in UU, b/c I do.

    That is probably way more information than you wanted.:laugh:
