Session 4 | Day 3

The morning started at 6 am, after going to bed at eleven last night, but I fell back to sleep several more times for the next hour. That is until I had the sudden realization that breakfast was in fifteen minutes, and the food here is ALWAYS amazing! So I excitedly hopped up and started getting ready as soon as…

Session 4 | Day 2

I slept like a rock through the night, but NO ONE slept through the sound of many feet and the loud sound of a banging door of the morning runners heading out for their exercise. I was slightly agitated at them for being so energetic at such an early hour, but I then realized that it was almost my turn…

Session 4 | Day 1

My name is Laura. I am excited. See, for the last 6 weeks I've been working here on staff, helping out with photography and videography and posting this seamless blog. Every night for the past 6 weeks I've stayed up with students conversing with them about their days, encouraging them to write, watching them capture the events of the day…

Session 3 | Day 13

The Last Day. The day loved by some and hated by many. This would be the day of the last Summit breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The last Noebel talk. The last dull day to spend with all the friends that we have made. This day began with everyone waking to the bagpipes playing a classic bagpipe song (go figure). Luckily…

Session 3 | Day 12

This morning was somehow an easy wakeup. I managed to get up around 6:15 or 6:20. I had a nice full of basket full of clothes to fold and wash. Luckily the laundry room was not packed at all. After about 20 minutes of folding clothes, I headed to breakfast which is somehow always good since I am from the…

Session 3 | Day 11

The Day began quite differently this morning at Summit. The boys of summit hiked up Red Mountain and discussed the emotional pain that God has for his people. They also had a quite amusing doughnut eating contest where the winner ate eleven and a half doughnuts. The boys were responsible for holding in their doughnuts until they reached the bottom…

Session 3 | Day 10

Merry Christmas Everyone! (We celebrated a no-presents Christmas today to remember to just enjoy each other and the celebration of Christ!) Today we listened to the teachings of Dr. Bauman and Dr. Linden. Our first lecture, "The Problem of Pain" by Dr. Bauman tackled the issue of a God both just and powerful regardless of the pain we experience based…

Session 3 | Day 9

Monday. I think we are all still recovering from our long day yesterday. Everyone looked pretty tired at the first session this morning, but woke up as the day went on. First Dr. Moreland came and spoke to us on loving God with all our minds. He pointed out how many people disconnect faith from reason and thinking, but that…

Session 3 | Day 8

When I signed up to blog on Sunday, I did not realize that I would be signing up for such a relaxing day. On Sunday, we were given the choice of taking part in a foosball tournament, whitewater rafting, or going on a hike up Pike's Peak. I chose to go for the hike. At 5:30, I woke up, and…

Session 3 | Day 7

Today at the Summit was a slight break from the typical knowledge boot camp, because we had 3 lectures and a movie as a opposed to the typical five or six lectures. Although more laid back today it was still very productive. Doc Noebel started the day off with his Bible hour followed by the movie, Obsession, a movie about…

Session 3 | Day 6

5:34. This is when the sun rises in Manitou Springs, Colorado, and what a beautiful sunrise it is! After the sun comes up, we thankfully get a few more hours of sleep before the day begins. Today, it began pleasantly with biscuits and gravy--which I had to mention because I loved it so much. Following breakfast, we receive our morning…

Session 3 | Day 5

Today started off with John Stonestreet . He gave an eye opening lecture on bio-technology and the lack of ethics in that filled. It was quite enlightening considering the fact that I have a very limited knowledge and understanding of bio-technology. We talked about a variety of things such as what bio-technology is, what are some challenges to bio-technology, having…

Session 3 | Day 4

Today at summit, where to start? Today we had John Stonestreet and Ryan Dobson so pretty much the day was full of laughter, awesomeness, and amazing teaching. We were lucky enough to get an open forum with Ryan Dobson and ask anything we wanted. His two main topics today were conversational apologetics and "are you going to follow God?"

Session 3 | Day 3

So, 2nd day and there were four room do- overs today. They were all girls' rooms too. Very sad, but at least it wasn't my room. Our first speaker today can only be described as "having more fun than a human being ought to have". Dr. Mike S. Adams spoke today on Abortion, Economic & Cultural Marxism, and Christianity &…

Session 3 | Day 2

The schedule may be law here at Summit, but I can easily predict our stay over these two weeks will be anything BUT routine. Honestly, though, I don't exactly look forward to the creative, devious methods by which Night Watch will awaken us at 7:00 sharp... the surprisingly strict guidelines by which room cleanliness is judged have already caught many…
