We are having Come and See weekend right now for prospective seminary students. It's been fun seeing all the excited and sometimes bewildered faces and remembering how we felt last year during our visit to Sewanee. We were scheduled to come to Come and See last year, but we all had the flu so we had to cancel. I now know how people here must have felt, we are sponsoring a family and they're not here yet and I'm sad. I can't wait to talk to them, and show them around, and answer any questions they may have.
We ended up coming to visit a few weeks later and loved it from the moment we arrived. I've already met some people who know this is the place for them. Sewanee just has that way about it; it's welcoming and warm and beautiful, even if it is a dreary rainy winter day.
