Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth. Every time I read those words from Ecclesiastes 12:1, the voice of Dr. Christian Adjemian rings through my mind.
Sixteen years ago, one sultry summer night, I sat with some three-hundred others from our presbytery in the chapel atop the hill at Johnson Bible College outside of Knoxville, Tennessee. I had completed high school and in a few short weeks would begin my studies at Purdue University. Dr. Adjemian had spoken on the book of Ecclesiastes that week at the Covfamikoi Family Conference, and the conference theme was A Time for Living.
