Session One - Day One

Here we are in Tennessee for the beginning of Session One! As a first year staffer the experience of the Tennessee session has been totally new and uniquely challenging. The students all arrived today (Sunday afternoon) and as they trickled in they were guided to their rooms and introduced to their hall mates. I was a student last year and can remember what an exciting experience that move-in day can be! Meeting these new people is exhilarating and a little daunting for both staff and students. But Summit is designed to break down those tricky awkward moments and build a small community of growing Christians. The students have entered a place where they will be challenged intellectually and stretched to think beyond their usual level. As developing Christian leaders, it is vital that they understand both what they and what others believe. Summit will prepare them for the difficulties that crowd around one who attempts to live in the world but not of the world. It is my prayer (and that of all of the staff) that the students will have the physical stamina to focus for these two intense weeks and that God will bless our efforts to show them so much more about their worlds. ~Blessings from Dayton~
