Lindsey Wilson College celebrates Methodist heritage
The Lindsey Wilson College community celebrated its connection to The United Methodist Church on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, during the annual Church College Celebration Day.
The college - which is affiliated with the Kentucky Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church - held Church College Celebration Day in V.P. Henry Auditorium. Church College Celebration Day was started more than 20 years ago by then-LWC Provost and Dean of the Faculty Walter S. Reuling as an expression of the college's relationship with The United Methodist Church, which dates to LWC's founding in 1903.
The ceremony consisted of songs of worship, scripture readings, a college and church affirmation by LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., and a message by Rev. Mark Dickinson, Superintendent for the South Central District of the Kentucky Conference.
During his affirmation, Luckey upheld Lindsey Wilson's commitment to the United Methodist Church and the college's responsibility to honor religious practice and Christian tradition within the totality of the college.
"We affirm our commitment to the church by including in our faculty, staff and trustees, persons who are value-centered and understand and respect the relationship with the United Methodist Church," said Luckey who has served as the eighth president of LWC since 1998. "We commit to expanding the impact of our faith and service beyond the boundaries of this campus and into this community, across this country and around the world."
Rev. Mark Dickinson from Bowling Green, Ky., was named Superintendent for the South Central District of the Kentucky Conference in 2018 after serving as senior pastor at Florence United Methodist Church in northern Kentucky for 13 years.
Dickinson's sermon was a message of encouragement to believers - telling them to not be dismayed during these unusually difficult times. Quoting from Psalms he told the crowd to "be brave, be strong, don't give up and expect God to get here soon."
"I hope you know you are not alone, that God is with you in life," said Dickinson. "If you are at the end of your rope, if you are ready to give up -- don't. Don't give up. Know that God has not abandoned you, he has not left you. The almighty God is right here with you to help you move forward."
