Session 5 | Day 7b
It’s late on Saturday night (almost 11PM), and most of us have a very early morning tomorrow—the 5:15AM type of early. Students will either hike Pike’s Peak or go white-water rafting with Noah’s Ark Rafting Company. Taking into account the incredible and exhausting day that all of us have had, this blog entry could get quite interesting. ☺
We started the day hearing from Dr. Bob Linden who spoke about Christian leadership. His message was captivating and relevant. The main question he asked this morning was, “Is God in control?” I was then challenged to take that into consideration in how I live out my life. If we choose to believe that God is in control (which He is), this can affect our attitudes and how we live out our lives.
After the mid-morning break, we heard from Chuck Edwards about worldviews in the media. He taught us about how those in the entertainment industry use their work to convey their own worldviews and sneak them into the minds of society.
The day then took a bit of a spin when we spent the entire afternoon at the park for an extended sports day. The highlight of my day: sitting outside surrounded by mountains and worshipping God with student musicians. As I sat there in the midst of God’s creation, I told some friends that this was all I ever wanted to do: sit in the park, listen to great music, participate in worshipping a God who loves us unconditionally.
We finished the day by hearing from Mike Haley, a former homosexual who now serves the Lord by working for Focus on the Family. He captured our hearts when he told us his testimony and how “the ground is level at the foot of the cross.”
