I don’t feel like writing my paper….so I am going to write on here

Thursday night going out to camp Harlow and the campfire was a really great night. There were skits (most of which were kind of inside jokes, so I didn’t totally get them) and songs, and worship. Overall it was really great night! There was this one presentation, it wasn’t really a skit because there wasn’t anyone talking. But it was like a visual representation of sin and the Gospel. A person put a chair with a sign taped to it that read sin. There was music playing and then a girl from the leadership team was up on stage. She would look at the chair and think about it, and then walk away, then look back at it. Finally she went over to and was looking at the chair and finally touched it, just with one finger, but she touched it. And she was stuck, she couldn’t take her finger away from the chair. She tried so hard, but couldn’t. Then her hand got stuck on the chair. After that two girls who seemed to be friends walked up on stage. They waved at her, but she stood in front of the sign that said sin, and tried to act as normal as possible. This process went on, until she was kneeling/sitting on the chair and totally stuck, heartbroken and crying. Then a man came up on stage. Slowly, little by little, he took her hands and legs off the chair. Then he took her place on the chair. Finally he threw the chair off the stage (it was outside, so he threw it onto some dirt) symbolizing the defeat of sin. It was just such a real and beautiful picture of Jesus coming and saving us from sin.

He died so that we could have life.

What a beautiful thing? I can’t think of anything more beautiful and filled with love. So much so that had tears coming down my face by the time he finally tossed the chair off stage. I wish I had taken a video of it so other people could have seen it, but I didn’t so my description will just have to do.

Also Thursday night I met one of Tyler’s friends who is on the leadership team out at Harlow and she is possibly looking for a roommate and a new place to live. So that is really exciting! She seems really nice. Talking with her it was evident that she has a fire and passion for the Lord. It was so awesome and refreshing to talk to another woman that has that fire! It reminded me of friendships from SLO, and that was just really great! Tomorrow I am going to go to the church she normally goes to, and then we are going to have lunch and she is going to come look at the apartment! I am looking forward to checking out another church down here, and hopefully getting closer to finding a home church. One other thing, she is part of a bible study of women who are really getting into the word and talking about what it is saying. I’m pretty excited to go check this out too, probably once I get back from California. But I really want to find a solid group of women to become a part of, because especially at the end of the year I was really coming to realize how important fellowship and community with other sisters in Christ is for my relationship with the Lord and just my life in general!!

These past few days I have been in pseudo-summer. Basically not having class or any commitments, but having school work to do. I think it might be worse than having class because summer is so close, yet so far!! Well now off to make it a little closer and work on my 311 paper

p.s. I fly into California in less than a week! And in less than a week Vince and Angela will be married!! So exciting!!!!

p.p.s. I am wanting some good books to read while on vacation! Any suggestions??? I think Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis will be one, but I have a feeling I am going to finish that and want some others to read! I am open to suggestions!!
