Ratio Christi Symposium in Denver, Colorado

It was such a brief visit, I really wish that I’d had more time, but I’m happy to be back home for the holidays and I even got a brief visit with my boyfriend after he took his LSAT in town. So overall safe travels and I’m resting up.

Such joy filled me as I saw just how many people took time out of their busy schedules to come together and celebrate the work we’re doing on campuses to protect kids and teach them the truth. We introduced a new logo for the ministry, and discussed coming together “With One Voice,” which was the theme of the symposium.

Here are some shots of the group, and the beautiful Denver sky the evening that we had supper together after lessons and worship.

We’re pressing forward into the giving season and hoping for a bountiful harvest of support that will carry the work that we’re doing into next year and beyond.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Autumn in the Neighborhood

It was a gorgeous day and I couldn’t miss a lovely walk in the noon day sun. God has been so kind to me in these recent months and I adore this season that He designed. All of my favorite colors together.

“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

-Matthew  9:37-38

Jackson Falls, Summer 2018

My boyfriend and I drove out to a nearby waterfall, very close to home, and found that lack of rain in recent weeks allowed us to hike all the way up to the source waters and then down to the Duck River, where they emptied out (more like dried out–there were jut rocks at the bottom).

I was amazed by how very green it was. I kept the raw color in the images as they had been captured so that you can see what it was like while we were there.

Waterfalls and Creek Stomping

Woke up early to hit up Crema in Nashville with Taylor and Landry (the most adorable couple on the planet) where I had a lovely Chai and something called avocado toast (goat cheese, baby lettuce, joy, etc.). Then we all hopped back in the jeep and made the journey to Cummin’s Falls State Park. Thankfully we arrived a bit before the main crowd got there.

If you go, you WILL need to ford the river several times to get to the base of the falls so wear river sandals and have a water-tight backpack to protect any phones or cameras you might bring.

It was a blast. More adventures to come.

 

Vision Sunday (and intro to summer Community Small Groups!)

It’s been a good while since I posted anything, but rest assured I’ve been working away at capturing videos and snapping shots of our church family. Here are some fun grabs from Vision Sunday — refocusing on our mission toward discipleship and becoming more like Christ. It’s always good to check your compass after a while.

Also we’re starting up our small groups, led by members and focusing each on a different issue. It was a great time of fellowship and new introductions!
