As Nordic Choir alums, Carolyn and I still have ringing in our ears the words from Revelation 21: 1-5, so beautifully and powerfully set to music in the piece And I Heard a Great Voice by Paul Christiansen. The last phrase of the song is “Behold, I make all things new!” In the life of Luther College, these words have great relevance today. Forty-nine years ago, we were NEW students in a NEW place. We had NEW roommates, NEW class schedules, and were making NEW friends as we embarked upon our NEW journey at a place called Luther College. Several more generations of NEW students have also experienced these NEW challenges in the years since we graduated.
