Wow, week three. It seems like it’s flying by. I’m learning so much, and I’m getting way better at ping-pong. Summit Semester is supposed to be a place where you think about things from a Christian perspective, learn about Christian history, and learn that there are holes in just about every theory you have to explain things. It is very…

What is Beauty?

What is Beauty?

It is beginning to look a lot like fall. The white-trunked aspens are exiting their season of photosynthesizing and are slowly changing from deep forest-green to many different shades of oranges and yellow. God’s creation is indeed BEAUTIFUL! But what is beauty? The New Oxford American Dictionary defines it as "a combination of qualities such as shape, color, or form…

Finding Resolution

Finding Resolution

We have now completed our second week here at Snow Wolf lodge, and what an amazing week it has been. Dr. Bauman has continued to challenge us and make us think about our deepest convictions, and he has succeeded once again in showing us just how much we have yet to learn. This week in politics we discussed war vs.…

Hard Work and Bookwork

Hard Work and Bookwork

Tomorrow is the two-week anniversary of arriving at Summit, though it feels like we have been here much longer. My relationships with many of the guys here already are closer than that of some of the people I spent years with in high school. I am starting to feel really settled in.

Day 12

As I write this at two in the morning (I knew that five and a half hour nap this afternoon was a bad idea), I find that I really haven’t had a chance to think back on the last twelve days. They’ve been jam packed, to say the least. I definitely think it’s a good idea to reflect on them…

Questions?

Questions?

Dr. Michael Bauman arrived Wednesday evening and began his course on The History of Christian Thought with us. I have never heard someone ask so many questions in my life! As he taught this week, he would randomly ask some of the students for a response based on their beliefs. They were questions such as:

Quick to Listen

Quick to Listen

In the process of slowing down from a busy life and schedule, I found how blessed I was to be in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, away from internet and with spotty cell reception. I was now free to engage in the community here and devote myself completely to growing in wisdom and knowledge. The community here gelled within twenty-four…

Great Beginning to a Fresh Start

Great Beginning to a Fresh Start

Welcome to the first blog post of the Semester! So much has happened within the past few days that, for me, life before Semester seems a thing of the past. These past few days have been devoted to orienting us to the Summit rituals and rules as well as giving us opportunities to meet everyone. For the five of us…
