As you can imagine, college students are facing unique challenges this fall. At a time in life that is marked by high energy, thirst for adventure, and non-stop activity, the world threw up a giant stoplight that left the skid marks of a young generation.
Since our school is committed to honoring the safety protocols of our county and state, many students found themselves in at least two weeks of quarantine at some point during the semester. And while quarantine is difficult for anyone, you can imagine the challenges for a high-energy young adult mostly confined to single dorm room!
"Find the Gold"
But even in the midst of this, many of our students emerged from the quarantine "mud pit" with stories of gold and the goodness of God. After the majority had been released, we had a testimony service in Chapel - sharing what God was doing in and through them this year. The stories were astounding! The things the Spirit spoke. The deep lessons on rest and focus. How they turned off Netflix and used the time to seek Jesus. I was both convicted and amazed!
