"The Internet is the most important single development in the history of human communication since the invention of call waiting." That's how humorist Dave Barry views web-based communiqués.

Barry's comical, lighthearted sentiments about email, for example, hardly reflect Truett-McConnell's commitment to keep alumni informed and encouraged about what God is doing at your alma mater. We have a much different take on that.

Communication, however, is a two-way street. Inasmuch as we are now communicating more regularly with you, we, too, would like to hear routinely from you. If you will tell us what's happening in your life and ministry and church and career, we will pass the good news on to those who care about you -- your fellow alums.

Consider, if you would, this quote by Sidney J. Harris: "The two words 'information' and 'communication' are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through."

One of the ways we will know if we are "getting through" to you is when you "get through" to us. So, as your "Alumni Advance" e-newsletter matures, please feed us the information needed to help it grow. And when that information is sent to your peers, then effective communication takes root, grows and begins to blossom.

Let us hear from you.
