First I will take you through what we did on our Mystery Monday this week like I will do at the beginning of each of these Link Year posts. On Monday Tim Bohlke came in and talked to us about getting into a rhythm of reflection and solitude. Personally I haven’t intentionally taken the time to unplug from communication and plug into God’s beautiful creation to think about different areas of my life. This is exactly what we did. We went down to the lake in the morning when the thick fog was still alive. Tim directed us to go off on our own and take a few hours to think about certain areas in our life that will help us keep running towards the cross. This time of reflection was very impactful. Needless to say it was a good Mystery Monday.
For the remainder of the week we got to listen to the author of Is God Just a Human Invention?: And Seventeen Other Questions Raised by the New Atheists (With Sean McDowell), Welcome to College: A Christ-follower’s Guide for the Journey, Think Christianly: Looking at the Intersection of Faith and Culture. This guy was legit. Too legit. Too legit to quit! (quote from a movie). Over the past three days we learned how to prove that God does exist with a few arguments as well as proving the resurrection of Jesus without reading any verses from the Bible! On top of speaking all three days this week, Jonathan also spoke on Proverbs 4 at the Fort on Wednesday night, which you can hear here. I don’t want to spoil it for you but he talked about how we make and break habits; very interesting stuff. I highly encourage you to take a listen. One last thing that I enjoyed hearing from Jonathan was his encouragement to get ready for battle, a.k.a. college, by learning these arguments for our beliefs.
Until next time.
