Inside Elevation // Charlotte, N.C.

If you ever get a text asking if you want to snag a last-minute opening to attend Elevation Church’s bi-annual leadership conference, you should definitely call out of work for two days, email your professors, throw clothes in a suitcase, and board that bus as fast as you can. I’ve watched a little of Steven Furtick’s preaching online, but I had never visited the main…

Mosques & Arches // Washington D.C.

I visited a mosque last October with LU’s Global Serve Program, a one-year mentoring process designed to train students in cultural intelligence and cross-cultural communication. Islam is a major world religion, so naturally we wanted to learn more about this culture and belief system!

Do It Afraid // Summer Camp in GA

I rarely went to summer camp as a kid. Camp week always managed to fall either during family vacation, an occasional hospital trip, or during band rehearsals. I wasn’t big on roughing it in the great outdoors either; I’d rather go to the pool or the library instead of the woods. I’ll take a milkshake over mosquitoes any day. This summer, however, I’ve spent several…
