Yesterday as I drove away from campus, I noticed that demolition had begun on a building that has served Concordia Seminary well. Located at the intersection of Seminary Place and San Bonita, this building has stood as a home for professors, staff, and students for many years.
Now that its service has ended, it is good to see that it is being disassembled rather than demolished. Plank by plank, and brick by brick the building is coming down. As I watched the progress, it seemed remarkable to me that such good stewardship is going into this effort. The building's remains will not be wasted; they simply will be built into something else.
