Every fall thousands of alumni flock back to their college campuses to celebrate Homecoming. Amid the pep band playing the fight song and old friends laughing over favorite memories, I realized Homecoming, for me, is a little different. After graduation, I spent several years as an academic advisor to student-athletes at my alma mater, Western Kentucky University. It’s given me a unique perspective on college life, well, post college. So here are a few things I learned about finding deeper meaning while you’re still on campus.
As promised, here are all the evening sessions with Tony Merida from Collegiate Week West. If you missed them, be sure to also download Jeff Iorg’s sessions. The files from Ridgecrest will be coming soon.
Have you ever gotten angry at God because of something He wanted you to do? Jonah did. Reading through the Book of Jonah, it’s easy to think badly of him for running from God and getting angry about God’s plans for him. But if I’m being honest, I have to admit there are times I‘ve gotten mad at God, and if you’ve been a Christ-follower very long, you probably have too.
We announced at Collegiate Week that we would be making the sessions available for download here on the Web site, and you let us know how eager you are to get your hands on them. So, instead of making you wait until we have all the files ready, I’m going to be releasing them here a little at a time. Today, I’m bringing you all the morning sessions with Jeff Iorg from Collegiate Week West. Be on the lookout for the rest of the sessions coming over the next week.
Alright, I have a confession to make, I like Nicholas Cage and generally speaking, his movies as well. One of my favorites, that I’ll still watch anytime it’s on TV, is National Treasure. I love the scene when Cage puts on the colored glasses that illuminate different parts of the map as he changes lenses. The invisible becoming visible. Maybe I like the movie so much because I secretly would love to be a treasure hunter. Or maybe I like the idea that there’s a treasure out there and all around me are clues ordinary people never see. But, when you know what to look for, you see things that others don’t.
We have a special treat today for anyone not able to attend Collegiate Week. Both of today’s worship services will be streamed live from Glorieta in the video player below. Come join us at 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).
Back in May, Matt Johnson sent us a great video of his experience at BeachReach, giving us permission to put it on our site. I’ve been waiting for a while to post it to this blog, but today is the perfect day because I now have the 2010 BeachReach dates to share with you. You can choose between March 6–12, 13–19, and 20–26.
As a believer for 26 years, a full time church staff wife for thirteen years, after diligently serving the church my entire adult life, and after writing six Christian books for women, I thought I was done with entire life interruption for the kingdom. And yet…
