Tennessee Session Two- 7/26/09
"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 to turn our minds upon God. This morning, I -along with over half the students at Summit- woke up before seven, snatched a quick breakfast, and headed to the Ocoee River to go white-water rafting. Once we were there, I hopped into a raft with six other kids and the coolest guide in Tennessee. Somehow, I survived Flippers, Diamond-splitters, and Slicers to make it back to Bryan in the afternoon. After some downtime and another fantastic dinner, I was herded into the Rudd Auditorium to hear Mike Haley present a lecture on homosexuality. He did a fantastic job of displaying how society is affected by the gay/lesbian agenda, then went even further to inform us on how Christians should react, even presenting his own life story to illustrate his points. After a full week of learning, it's still a blessing to be here and to learn about the issues that will shape the society that I'll be growing up in.
