Tennessee Session Two- 7/31/09

Well, we have reached the conclusion of our last session of Summit this summer. What a crazy ride! I am so glad you decided to experience a little piece of Summit with us through this Blog. The student here, last session, and in VA worked very hard to offer you a glimpse of their amazing experience here at Summit.

Tennessee Session Two- 7/30/09

I came to Summit to prepare me for the different views I would see at college. I have met tons of new friends with the same intellectual curiosity about Christianity that I have. I have especially enjoyed our small group and how it was able to deepen my understanding of the Gospel.

Well hello everyone out there in internet land! I hope everyone is doing well! Summit has been an awesome experience. I hope to take home all the information I've learned and apply it to my life. Today we played wiffle ball which was craziness, and took the group picture finally after a day of rain. It started raining this morning…

Summit has been absolutely phenomenal, just like last year. We've had a ton of great lectures by a handful of amazing professors and speakers. Topics ranging from feminism to abortion to economics to social justice, it's all been extremely enlightening, helping to spark our interest and further our knowledge of the world around us. At Summit, we've been learning something…

Hey guys, my name is Caitlin. I am one of the students attending Summit at Bryan College. I'm supposed to be informing you about the wonderful day we had today. Our first speaker today was Kevin McCullough. He is a political radio host. We had a great time listening to him explain all the faults in our government, but we…

"Alright, guys, this next part is called Flipper, and it's not named after the dolphin." Who would have thought that after surviving a week of intensive lectures, I'd die on a Class-4 rapid doing its best to live up to its name? It's Sunday, the first day of our second week, and the Summit staff certainly developed an interesting way…

Its day 7 and we are half way through the session. All the speakers have been fantastic and mind blowing. The days are just all flowing together but have been changing to me personally. It is my second year here and I'm learning something new from every session. Every day after our minds have been blown away by the speakers,…

Tennessee Session Two- 7/24/09

Hellooo..i woke up this morning. I think this has been the fifth morning that I've woken up at Summit. Though I actually woke up in time to eat a decent breakfast, as opposed to yesterday, today was one of the hardest days to get up. I Love my sleep, and I wish I could get more, but I suppose I'm…

"The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it." -Flannery O'Connor. Whether or not the eggs served at breakfast this morning at Bryan College were actually eggs or not, they were pretty hard to stomach. In all actuality, the food that has been served (so far) at Summit 2009 has been quite delectable! Different servings from day…

Tennessee Session Two- 7/22/09

Today at Summit is the third full day here, and I must say this is an experience unlike any other I have had. I've had dozens of Christian camp experiences, and none can compare to this. I come from the "Bible Belt" in Texas, and being from there I have grown up with "Christian" beliefs. I know them in my…

Early this morning, the students of Summit were graced with the presence of Dr. David Nobel, founder and president of Summit ministries, Wisconsin Badger and current resident of Manitou Springs, CO. Let me assure you, our minds were unspeakably overwhelmed with his brilliance, ability to carry on a lecture without the aid of a powerpoint, childishly curious nature, and dry…

Tennessee Session Two- 7/20/09

This is my first year to attend Summit and as the official first day, it has been a blast. Today's experience at Summit was, for lack of better terms, mind boggling. So much information was squeezed into one day ranging from the worldviews all around the globe to why we experience pain and suffering.

The summit is by far one of the best things that has ever happened to me! I was one of those kids that didn't want to come... and for two years I battled my wonderful mom not to come. This past year my awesome mother came to me and totally shattered my summer with the news that I would be…

Tennessee Session One - 7/16/09

Today we continued our talk on proper foundations of the Bible and learned more about the big story that is told through the Bible as a whole. As a whole, the series on Proper Foundations has been really inspiring to me to want to read through the entire Bible, cover to cover, one because I've never done it before, and…
