And an amazing time was had by all...

Casey and I, along with one of our elders and four college students (plus a newly-wed spouse!), arrived back from the 2005 National Campus Ministers Seminar last night. What an awesome experience! Shortly before I began this blog last August, Casey and I had attended our very first NCMS in West Virginia. This past week it was held in Norman, Oklahoma. I feel like quite the traveler, to be honest!

Upon arrival into town last night, we made our way to the student union on campus, and there we prayed prayers of hope for this coming school year. It was exciting to stand near the doors that will be touched by so many students -- some who know God and love him, some who know God and do not care, and some who have never known God and are searching. We want to touch their lives and 'be Jesus' to them. We want to show them that we are sinners but that God forgives us and helps us in our daily walk with him.

Anyway, back to the prayer...we were just finishing up when we heard the sounds of bagpipes floating across the campus, and the guy was playing 'Amazing Grace' of all things! The words of our prayer seemed to be purposely accompanied by the notes of the song, and all were filled with an extra measure of determination that this will be an amazing year.

Thanks for the agreement, Jolene! Um...hmm, where did Toby go? I can't remember, but I might have taken him out of the sidebar for now. Sorry...

Thanks for missing me, Sarah! =)
