  • I cannot wait to get there! My friend and I, a few of the leaders in our church college ministry, are going. I cannot wait! I can't wait to see what God reveals to me there about Him, about me&Him, and about me, Him and the college students I love so much...
    (And on an unrelated topic real quick: Louie, the story of your college career actually has helped me this semester. I, the student who has always been on honor roll, hit an emotionally and financially stressful period in fall 2005, freaked out, stopped going to class and finally failed out this fall. I felt depressed, ashamed of myself, despised myself for what I did, and felt like I'd ruined my entire life. Your story helped me remember a) this happens to other people who have turned it around. With God, this isn't who I have to be and b)I'm 22. This isn't the end.
    I'm working, diving deeper into God, and planning to return better in the fall. Knowing that happened to you, hearing how you listened to God, persevered and are who you are now...if someday I can be a guide to ONE person, the way you & PassionHouse have been to me...wow.)
    God Bless and sorry this is a long comment.

  • I want to go, especially since I will probably be doing campus ministry in some capacity next year, and definitely in the future. The problem is that while that is a good time for people on a college schedule who finish school in April, I don't finish teaching until the end of May, and I'm already bailing on the end of teacher planning, and am unsure if it would be wise to take more days off. I need to pray about it more.

    A note for beth j: It sounds like you've learned this well, and I just wanted to affirm this in you, that failure can be a huge stumbling for those of us who are used to being the sort of people who other people do things for, or make things happen for, and discovering that constant success is really impossible, I think is one of the biggest transformations a person can have in their walk with God. In my own life, it was my inability to do pull-ups (I was in the circus, long story) that finally pushed me to my knees before God to recognize that it wasn't my grades, my athletic ability, or my appearance that God desired, but an undivided heart. Learning I do nothing without grace....I learn that more everyday, but being smacked in the face with it the first time is a powerful experience.

  • I very much look forward to Thirsty. I went last year, it was very nice. I'm needing a break right now, May seems like two years away. Look forward to May.
