where’s the love?

seuniversityMy alma mater, Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL, has been seeing some press lately in relation to its proposed performing arts center. The property directly to the north of the University has been owned by its affiliated church, the Assemblies of God (for the sake of disclosure, I am an adjunct at this University and my father is a pastor in this denomination), and has been leased to primarily retired pastors and missionaries for as long as I know.

Earlier this week, residents were informed that the property had been sold to the University to make room for a much needed performing arts center and they have 6 months to move. The story has been picked up by the local newspaper here and here and perhaps elsewhere. The residents are very upset and, as the Ledger tells, are considering class action. I truly hope an agreeable solution can be reached.
