Missional Practitioners In-Residence | Fall 2010

David and Lenuta Chronic - Word Made Flesh

"During the 2010 fall semester, the George Fox University Center for Peace and Justice and the Office for Spiritual Life hosted us as "Missional Practitioners In-Residence." The purpose of this sabbatical was to withdraw from the community and ministry with which we have been involved for the last 13 years in Romania.

At George Fox we met some amazing people among the faculty and students. We were invited to speak in a number of different classes and meetings. We shared some reflections from our life in Romania at a Peace and Justice Symposium and we were able to tag along to a couple student retreats. We spent much of our time in the library, trying to flip through as many books as we could. (The library was especially beneficial for David's research for his MA program.)

The surroundings of George Fox were absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed jogging through the gardens, vineyards and orchards. We participated in a conference on Play Therapy and some courses on cognitive development. We simply tried to enjoy each day as it came."
