With the very unexpected passing of Carol Arcuri from our faculty, our academic dean wisely (and firmly) recommended we all document our processes and clearly lay out our teaching order and calendar.
It is a necessary tool for improvement to know what you did versus what you desired to do. In our case, it is simply needed as wise stewards to benefit those who will take over our classes through a planned or unplanned exit.
For these weeks as I have painstakingly revisited my spreadsheets editing, adding, and moving ideas and page numbers around, I have been moved by the single thought of legacy. Not just an academic or procedural legacy, but one of influence, presence, and ministry. Every week I am spreading, distilling, and disseminating my influence; leaving if you will, my legacy.
