Session One - Day Eight
Well, I woke up this morning around 6:30 a.m. and started preparing for my day. After picking up my room for inspections, I went and played piano around 6:45 a.m. in Brock Hall. Breakfast was spent with friends. We had great conversations about our favorite speakers and the "white water rafting" trip we had been on the day before. After breakfast I went up to the Lion's Den and watched fellow classmates play pool. Our first class this morning was by Dr. Jones where he taught about having a biblical view of literature. Dr. Jones then taught us on the theory of Deconstruction. After a short break we returned to the classroom where Dr. Cleveland taught a class on economics which was surprisingly interesting even for me who has absolutely no interest in economics. Following that class Dr. Cleveland then taught a class on communism and capitalism. After lunch we returned to the classroom again but it was now time for our majors where we got to pick which classes we wanted to attend. We could choose from a wide variety of classes and I had a little trouble choosing which class I wanted to attend but in the end I went to the class on literature. I found the literature class very interesting and our teacher Mrs. Impson read us a paper on the role that literature has played in her life and the reasons behind why she became a teacher and writer. We then had free time, which was spent playing pool, talking with friends, reading and even taking a nap. I really enjoy the worship time with Josh Bales and it has been such a long time since I have experienced such open and sincere worship. After worship we had a class by Debbie Brazina on feminism, in which she taught us how America has been moving towards a feminist society. After class we had a small group where we could talk about the things we had learned during the day. At the end of the day I have nothing but good things to say about Summit. I would recommend it to any teenager, whether they are rooted in their faith or stumbling in it. I have learned more about my faith and other faiths in this last week than I have learned in my entire life. Summit has been an all around good idea.
