Intro to Ministry Retreat

Friday night into Saturday morning was the Intro To Ministry class retreat, a trip designed to help beginning ministry students get to know each other and their professors better as well as learn new spiritual disciplines, how to “be real” with people, and the importance questioning mind-set. They threw in a gorgeous catholic retreat center and food because they love us and we got to meet and hang out with the professors who will be teaching us as we embark on our quests for a degree from the Department of Christian Education and Spiritual Formation. It sounded really nice. I[…]

5 HOMECOMING DO’s & DON’T’S

[two_fifth_last][/two_fifth_last] DON’Ts Don’t say yes out of pity. Spare the other person the embarrassment and yourself the uncomfortable feeling and just say no thanks. Don’t spend a ridiculous amount of money on the night. We’re all college students trying to pay off loans. There’s no need to impress anyone. Don’t ask a guy or girl that you just met the week of homecoming. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for spontaneity, but do you really want homecoming to be your make it or break it? (too soon, my friend, too soon) Don’t sit in the corner and not dance. You[…]

5 Signs You Transferred From A Community College

Hey friends! Being a transfer student gives me a whole new perspective on things, here at MNU.  I’m a new student, but at the same time I have been in college for two years!  Here are just a few things I have noticed about being a transfer student from a community college.   You walk around with your headphones in all the time. People at community college aren’t the most social.  Almost everyone there walks around with headphones in and alone.  It’s almost a social taboo to have a conversation with someone else in the hall. 2.   You do[…]

What Forgiveness Is – And What It Isn’t

Recently, I’ve had to forgive people for some things that I wish didn’t happen. Through the process of apologizing and forgiving, I came to realize that my definition of forgiveness was skewed. I assumed that forgiveness came with certain expectations and stipulations, but the truth is, it doesn’t. On Sunday, my pastor talked about forgiveness, and what he said was nothing short of a revelation to me. Here’s what he said… Forgiveness doesn’t make someone’s sin okay. Forgiveness doesn’t deny hurt or offense. Forgiveness is not always a relational reset. And here’s what I got from what he said… Forgiving[…]

Weekend Antics

As college students, I think we tend to forget there’s more to life than classes and work. I know I’m guilty of spending my weekends in my dorm room doing homework and cleaning house, or I go home and do absolutely nothing and then complain on Sunday night about how much homework I have to do before 7:30 AM Monday morning. This weekend was one of the busiest I’ve had since the semester started. It began with “Brigadoon” rehearsal on Friday afternoon and ended with a drive back from Atchison, KS with friends on Sunday evening. It was great to[…]

Sick, Sicker, Homesick

Hello friends, Have you ever felt really home-sick? I have! I actually miss home all the time: I miss my family, I miss my friends, and – most important – I miss home cooked meals!!! I believe, every college student experiences homesickness, and there is nothing bad about it, unless you let it take over you: bad grades, being unsocial, perform badly in sports, etc. The trick is to know what to do when you feel overwhelmed by the desire to go home. Especially for students who live further away, it is a challenge. If you fly here, you probably[…]

Night of Worship and Prayer Round One

Last night, October 4th, about fifty MNU students walked in the cold to the Harvest Prayer statue in the middle of campus and found a team of about fifteen people who were in way over their heads and praying their heart out for God’s will to be done because their human ability was just not enough. Before I tell the story of last night and the incredible things God did, let me just say hello! My name is Renée DeVault, I am a freshmen Bible and Theology/Communications major at MidAmerica Nazarene University and I am having the time of my life[…]
