Session 7 | Day 12

Two days left. The thought is both depressing and exciting at the same time. Depressing in that all the friends, leaders, and acquaintances and I will be going our separate ways. Exciting because its now nearing the time to put the tools, knowledge and principles I have been learning into practice. My time at Summit has been amazing! I came…

Session 7 | Day 11b

This week has been a lot to take in (both at mealtime and lectures. Lol.) but I'm glad to be learning in a place where intellectual topics have been made understandable. One thing that struck me the most is how Christians today have done a poor job of studying to show ourselves approved. Giving a reasonable answer for the hope…

Session 7 | Day 11a

I sit here on the front porch of Summit Ministries in Colorado. The sun rises in the east. Another day of lectures has begun. A day to be spent in classroom listening to some of the brightest Christian minds from around the country. Today's mind will be that of Norm Geisler. He has authoredco-authored 70+ books, in his lifetime, he…

Session 7 | Day 9

Another great day at Summit Ministries is, unfortunately, over. When I first looked at the schedule, I could not help but wonder to myself why on earth there was so much free time on Sunday, but I now know the answer...sleep. This week has been crazy, but also tiring, so the extra sleep probably helped a lot of people, because…

Session 7 | Day 8

Today at Summit could be described as a day of contrast. It was both a day of learning about extremely serious and consequential issues, but also a day of relaxation and fun. We started out the day listening to Dr. Noebel and his Bible Hour. Today he made us aware of the myriad of scientists who were the founders of…

Session 7 | Day 6

Hi! My name is Sarah, or as everyone here calls me, Lydia. I'm from Ripon Wisconsin, and I will be your blog writer tonight. First of all, I have to say, I can't believe it's already Friday! It seems like we just got here, and we have so much more to learn, that we can't possible fit it into one…

Session 7 | Day 3

Hello, I'm Sarah, and I'll be your blog writer today! I always feel it is important for any news reporter to make their bias clear from the start. Therefore I should tell you that I am a politically conservative homeschool graduate who does not excel at sports and who was fighting off a case of sleep deprived fuzzy-headedness on this:…

Session 7 | Day 2

"Ideas have consequences; bad ideas have bad consequences" and good ideas have GREAT consequences. The quote is from Dr. Michael Bauman (the speaker for the evening session), but the last statement is my own. My great idea, along with almost 170 other people, was to come to Summit this summer. Today, was our first day actually doing what we came…

Session 6 | Day 13

"The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock, and let the God of our salvation be exalted," a very common song heard during session 6: today was no exception. It was heard during our wonderful breakfast made by the kitchen staff. The day progressed with Dr. Noebel and his Bible Hour. Following Doc was a lesson from Eric Smith, a…

Session 6 | Day 12

"When we fight we win." That was the message that Mike Adams preached to us Tuesday and Wednesday, but it seems to be the universal theme of Summit. The whole reason I decided to come to Summit months ago was because I knew that I needed to be better equipped to defend my faith and Summit has definitely done that…

Session 6 | Day 11

This fair (and slightly chilly) morning at Summit was the Ladies' Breakfast. Most of the female population were woke up earlier than usual to attend this event, although some did stay in bed to avoid fatal brain failure (the cause of which is rampant lack of sleep and rapid brain growth). At the breakfast, we had a panel of women…

Session 6 | Day 10

Summit is an awesome place to learn about God and what we believe. Most of us started our day off with waffles or French toast sticks, bacon, eggs, oatmeal, or cereal at 7:15. Doctor Noebel started our morning classroom time with finishing the talk on the top fourteen reasons why we should study the Bible. He reminded us that the…

Session 6 | Day 9

It's hard to believe that we've already been here at Summit for over a week! It seems like each morning, it's a little harder to wake up...yet every morning I've woken up with a fresh excitement for what a new day here at the Summit holds. I must say that by the time 11pm, "lights out" rolls around, I'm extremely…

Session 6 | Day 8

Hello everyone! Today has been yet another fantastic day at The Summit...filled with a winning blend of fun, fellowship, and Christ-centered academics. Sunday here is a mostly "free day." Campers had four major options to choose from - whitewater rafting, hiking Pikes Peak, biking down from the summit of Pikes Peak, or sleeping in. I opted for the rafting, knowing…

Session 6 | Day 6

August 7, 2009 Greetings all! This is Matthew Yandell giving you an inside glimpse into the daily happenings of the Summit. We have had many unique adventures so far which have challenged us to think critically and most importantly, Biblically, about vital issues in our world today. The last 24 hours have been a madhouse. It all started in the…
