Session 2 | Day 11

Well, it is Wednesday night. Normally the majority of us would have been attending our youth activities tonight. But for the 100 or so of us who have had the privilege of attending Summit, these past few weeks have been anything but "normal." Right now as I sit here, students are gathered in the classroom for an auction (the students…

Session 2 | Day 10

Session 2 | Day 10

It is late Tuesday night, at 10:35 pm, and everyone is just hanging out before they all have to go to bed. Today was a great day, and in fact, two of my favorite speakers (Mr. Kevin Bywater, and Dr. Frank Beckwith) lectured today on a variety of interesting topics. However, tonight I will not be writing about the day's…

Session 2 | Day 8

Leaving for white water rafting at 5:45 a.m. was extremely early, but worth it. We went for a two hour bus ride and watched the staff sleep on the bus after they stayed up all night for night watch duty. When we arrived it was really cold and I couldn't believe that we were going to white water raft in…

Session 2 | Day 9

t is late Monday night (or early Tuesday morning) and it is hard to believe that we are already this far into week two. The time has flown by with this amazing group of students. Being on Night Watch, I have a lot of time to reflect on the happenings of the day. Today included normal classroom time, with speakers…

Session 2 | Day 7

It is 10:26 PM and everyone is heading for bed. We are all very tired, but looking back, I am sure that everyone would agree that today was a day of relaxation, fellowship, and of course, learning. This morning the sun was shining and Dr. Noebel opened with the quote: "The quality of a man's life is in direct proportion…

Session 2 | Day 6

It was hard to believe waking up this morning, it was already Friday! Five incredible days have flown by and today was no exception. Breakfast was scrumptious, as usual, followed by a trip to the local coffee shop. Dr. Noebel began the day's lectures with his entertaining and informative wisdom as we further delved into why we as Christians should…

Session 2 | Day 5

When waking up among the Colorado Rockies it is easy to become inspired and to realize the Lord's creative power. This would be the theme of the day. Another great lecture by Dr. Noebel on scripture and Christian Leadership preceded a class by Todd Cothran on the archeological evidence that supports the bible. This was an insightful class concerning the…

Session 2 | Day 4

I am currently sitting cross-legged on the floor in the classroom of Summit ministries. It's an hour before bedtime. Even at this hour what I observe and hear feeds my soul! Piano accompanied by soft guitar is joined by the hum of deep conversations. I see small groups still discussing life's greatest questions and our glorious God who answers those…

Session 2 | Day 3

Blissful sleep is once again disturbed by a crashing banging on my door, but I am not sad because so begins the second day of classes here at Summit. My day starts with a trek to the showers, for they have dispersed the stinkier gender throughout the classroom. Making the beds and hiding the dirty laundry can be something of…

Session 2 | Day 2

Waking up to the smell of the rocky mountain breeze, and the sound of birds chirping was the start to a wonderful God given day. So, as I began my morning, it was off to a head start with the wonderful morning meal of pancakes and fresh maple syrup. I felt ready to go and energized for the interesting day…

Session 2 | Day 1

As Summer Staff, I find myself in a position much envied by the students from Session 1--I am still at Summit, while they are now at home. The beginning of a new session brings with it an excitement and enthusiasm as I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. It also begets feelings of sadness and weariness…
