Session 2 | Day 3

As I began writing I wondered what exactly everyone back home would want to hear about. I came up with three things that would probably be on the list. 1. Have there been any injuries? That depends on the severity of the injury. There have been occasional headaches (probably from the amount of material, as well as lack of sleep)…

Session 2 | Day 2

Sitting here in the cafeteria I begin reflecting upon the past two days. Already it has been an amazing experience, one to be filled with priceless memories. Sunday I believe was awkward for all of us, but looking around this Tuesday evening I see tables upon tables of new friends gathered about them. Anxious faces no longer among us, but…

Session 2 | Day 1 - Arrival and First Day

It's hard to put into words the feelings that flash through one's mind when one of the most highly anticipated moments of summer is upon him.

Session 1 | Day 8 - Summit Activities

Summit has been a blast and we still have four days left! Not only have I been learning a ton in the classroom I have been able to enrich the Summit experience with all the extra activities. Every day from 2:00 pm to 5:15 pm we have free time, which is like recess for teenagers. The first two days we…

Session 1 | Day 8 - Summit, Week One: Lectures

It's hard to believe its only been seven days since we arrived at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee to attend the amazing Summit. Already, we've had roughly 36 lecture hours (by ten different speakers!). We've overviewed several religious worldviews; we've zoomed in on postmodernism, the New Age movement, abortion, evangelism, communication, & marriage. We've talked about socialism, communism, truth, leadership,…
