The “Crossing over” of Dr. Joan Carter
Joan Carter – distinguished professor, beloved colleague and friend to many—has passed away. She served for many years on the faculty of Canadian Theological Seminary and Ambrose Seminary in the transition to Calgary. I had the privilege of co-teaching a class with Joan when the Seminary was still in Regina and thus saw up close something of the grace and wisdom that she brought to the classroom and to her relationship with her colleagues. Her discipline was Counseling and Psychology and what we so appreciated was that she taught these courses with a deep commitment to not only her students, but also to the life and mission of the church. She goes to her Maker with our blessing and with our continued thanks that we had the opportunity to have her as a colleague and friend.
