On Tuesday, November 3 Worth (HBS MBA '11) and Amy Lumry were gracious enough to host a small group gathering for the Atlanta Chapter in their home. The group shared stories and backgrounds, reminiscing on life pre and post HBS, while also discovering shared interests.
Christian Hempell (HBS '03) shared an inspiring devotional from Genesis 3 around "thorns and thistles." "Why should we be surprised when we encounter hardship in the workplace?" Christian asked the group. Professional challenges have existed since the Fall! However, God uses these "thorns and thistles" to redeem us, make us more like Him, and bring His glory in our workplace. The group was encouraged to continue leaning on Christ through challenging professional situations.
