UGA campus minister speaks during Shorter University's chapel service
February 8, 2012 -
Franklin Scott, senior campus minister at the University of Georgia, spoke during Shorter University’s weekly chapel service on Tuesday.
Scott’s message was taken from the first chapter of Joshua with a special emphasis on verse 9: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Scott, who holds a Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, encouraged students, faculty, and staff to be more like Joshua. “Cultivate your relationship with God. Just like Joshua, we have to believe in God, trust God in all situations. Greater things will happen in your life if you strive to be the vessel that God wants and needs you to be.”
