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 instead they are replaced by smiles and laughter. It will never cease to amaze me how we as human beings, so different from one another, can come together in the blessing of friendship by just the small act of saying, "Hello" (or as we say in Texas, "Howdy").
I think back to today's sessions. Though it was a rather damp morning, the sessions were nothing less than they have been. We heard from Dr. Noebel about secular humanism. "Bad ideas have bad consequences; good ideas have good consequences." We had our first day of Biblical Foundations with Dr. Phillips, "The Bible is a pool in which a child may wade and an elephant may swim." We also heard Mr. Stonestreet speak who focused on transcendentalism and theism. All of the speakers and sessions were both inspiring and thought provoking.
With our second day quickly coming to a close, I look forward to the following days with much excitement! Please keep us in you players; that we will be prepared for whatever God has for us in the coming days. Hope you enjoyed this …have a splendiferous week!
