Mon-treat yo' self!
Last week we journeyed with hundreds of students from the U.S., and 30+ of us from Middle Tennessee, to... Montreat! It was their annual college conference and the theme was "compassionate community"... we got to learn from speakers like Eboo Patel and local prison chaplains and activists, and a great preacher, Rev. Aisha Brooks Lytle... we had some wonderful discussions about scriptures like the Good Samaritan, and focused on God's promises of mercy, which we should exemplify within ourselves and how we interact with others. Some of us also built an impressive puzzle, a moderately sized fire, and we ate a lot, a lot of great food. Success! :)
