Tennessee Session One - 7/14/09

It is now the 9th day that I have been at Summit and I can't describe how much I have learned and how much I've grown closer to God. Today began with Dr. Ken Turner speaking on the topic of building a proper foundation. I find it very relevant in the lives of Christians for our faith to be built…

Tennessee Session One - 7/13/09

Well I think that I should start by saying that this is the first time I have ever written a blog, so hopefully I won't mess up too much. Well today we listened to Mr. John Stonestreet give a lecture on how America today has lost its sense of masculinity. Today it is accepted for children to not grow up,…

The alarm clock rang, a particularly annoying sound when one is sleep deprived. 6 o'clock was definitely not an hour for which speaking was normal in our small Huston dorm-dominion. As we struggled to our feet we started to regret the decision to go white water rafting. "What the hoo ha have we gotten ourselves into," Christina asked?

Tennessee Session One - 7/11/09 Pt. 2

My name is Rachelle and I'm 17 years old. While I was at Summit I participated in the Evangelism trip. This was my first time doing this, so I was excited, but I also had some fear. At first I wasn't sure how to begin a conversation with complete strangers, but once I started I thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone I…

Tennessee Session One - 7/11/09 Pt. 1

I'm 19 and in my first year of college. I came to Summit to gain information that I could not only know and keep for myself, but to learn the skills necessary for sharing that knowledge with a lost world, and defend my faith against the various worldviews warring in the world around me.

Tennessee Session One - 7/10/09

This should be my last year at Summit. Shouldn't I graduate after attending four times? Perhaps I am not the student that you expected to find writing on this blog. (By the way, I have rarely read a blog and never dreamed that I would ever write anything for a blog.) You see, I am a high school teacher.

Tennessee Session One - 7/9/09

CS Lewis famously explained that "I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." Thursdays subliminal--well, actually stated--purpose has been to advance the basics of a Christ-centered worldview to communication, culture, and politics. I suppose all the skills in the world can be rendered…

Tennessee Session One - 7/8/09

Today we had the privilege to listen to three excellent speakers: Mr. Scott Klusendorf, Dr. Paul Boling, and Dr. Kurt P. Wise. Kulusendorf talked about the issue of abortion, relativism, and tactics to defend your beliefs. He taught us how to defend our views against abortion and how it was morally wrong. He taught how an embryo is still a…

Tennessee Session One - 7/7/09

Today I had an amazing day at the Summit full of awesome worldview. The speakers were very interesting and explained every point they brought up in great detail. Doc Noebel spoke on A LOT of worldview material but the thing that stuck out the most to me was the fact that in his past he became friends with another professor…

What a day. Though the weather started off hazy, and then turned to rain later this afternoon, we are finishing the day with a beautiful breezy evening set in the middle of Tennessee hills. Starting this morning off with a bang, we had 4 sessions before lunch listening to Chuck Edwards and Ben (we've been instructed that he is far…

Tennessee Session One - 7/5/09 pt 2

When I thought about the idea of going to summit for a second year I was looking to get re-immersed into the summit ministry deep thinking. Like they say, "It's like a fire hydrant of knowledge that just overfills you with knowledge." Now I can truly say that I am excited beyond words to be here once again!
