So, probably the biggest blessing this year has been getting to know the people involved in Belmont's Service Year for 2008-09. Learning to live inside of a community of people with a big heart for changing themselves in order to change the world is really awesome. The sweetness of accountability and fellowship has been life changing. Plus, they are some of the funniest people I've ever met. We're keeping a running tally of who can say community the most in sentences (hence, the title). The winner gets weapons in the war against street magic. Obviously the war against street magic is not real, but the laughs are. I'm definitely excited and looking forward to being a part of the organization next year, hopefully. I've got my application and everything.
I'm also going to have dinner with one of the speakers coming to campus tomorrow. Dr. Barbara Skinner is coming to talk about "Who Would Jesus Vote For?" Its looking to be an awesome convocation. I love being a part of University Ministries and getting invites to meet some really great speakers. Its a really neat part of the ministry.
