Session 3 | Day 1

The first day of Summit! Being agnostic, I was very apprehensive about arriving in Colorado, mostly concerned that the students would be unfriendly conservatives. Much to my surprise I discovered the opposite; I have found all the students and staff to be genuinely accepting and loving so far. Throughout the afternoon students of various ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds poured into…

Session 2 | Day 14

After almost two weeks of late to bed and early to rise, the start of our final day in Manitou did not exactly start with bang. To be precise, it started with the ringing of the 7am wake up bell. Some stumbled to the showers others walked bleary eyed to the kitchen in search of coffee. Today was different from…

Session 2 | Day 13

I was trying to think of everything I learned today and I'm finding it hard to narrow it down so that this blog doesn't turn into a chapter book. Well I guess I'll start off by saying that I'm not usually inspired to get up extremely early for any particular reason but I'm seeing a great new habit that I…

Session 2 | Day 12

The lobby of the Summit hotel is still jumping at 11:02 PM Mountain Time which is definitely past our bed time. In the classroom the Sudan Servant auction is going on and Judson is playing auctioneer as the students bid on offerings from the staff. My roommates and I won Starbucks and a trip to Garden of the Gods. All…

Session 2 | Day 11

Good morning! Well actually, it is night for me, but I'm hoping none of you are up this late to read this past eleven at night. First things first I guess, my name is Joshua Hill and I'm from the small town of Seminole, Texas. So the mountains of Colorado are quite a scenery change from the plains of West…

Session 2 | Day 9

Perhaps most crucial to understanding this blog is knowing that I am naturally an early bird and it's after 11. If my sentences lose coherency, it might be sleep deprivation - or the blue and green cloud that Doc talks about in downtown Man-i-too. ( Manitou) All that to say, my name is Alexandra Harrison, and I actually live in…

Session 2 | Day 8

So its been an interesting week and an even more interesting day. Today at summit I found myself struggling with the issue of worry. Yet ironically thru prayer and the great help of my small group leader I was able to come to peace with the issue. I began to look back at the week and realized that I was…

Session 2 | Day7

It's the end of the first week, and I can't believe that it went by so quickly and yet was so jam-packed with new friends, open forums, and, of course, the best camp food imaginable. One of Summit's traditions is the pledges to the American and Christian flags at the opening of the first lecture each day. Today, though, we…

Hi Mom, Dad, Jacob, and Pastor Rod! I'm so excited that I actually get the opportunity to write the blog! For those of you that don't know me I am Jodi Gross from Huron, South Dakota. Yes, it is very flat there. As I awoke this morning from a not so good night of sleep, I implemented what I learned…

Session 2 | Day 5

After being shanghaied into participating in the daily blog I realized that I was actually excited about a chance to pause and think about all that I have been doing since I got here to the Summit, and especially today. After breakfast this morning those of us who don't live with the schedule in our pockets were thrilled to find…

Session 2 | Day 4

Buy and do not sell truth, wisdom, instruction, and understanding. --Proverbs 23:23 It's not the things in the Bible I don't understand that scare me, but the things I understand. --Mark Twain Today at Summit we learned the meaning of these words. We were drilled with not only on the importance of truth and guided in our search for it,…

Session 2 | Day 3

Hi everybody! My name is Seth McKinnis from Wasilla, Alaska and this is my second Summit experience as I attended the first "half session" earlier this summer. Today, our classroom experience began with Dr. Noebel's Bible Hour, a time to study God's word. Today's verse was Proverbs 23:12 which states, "Apply thy heart to instruction and thy ears to the…

Session 2| Day 2

Hey. I'm Joanna Dieball and this is my one-and-a-half session. I attended the first session of this year, but it got cut short, as most of you know. It's the second day, and people are already getting crazy, making new friends fast, especially when you're stuck inside all day. It doesn't rain in Colorado a whole lot, but it seemed…
