It has begun....

Well, classes have finally started and I can say that this semester will be great. I know some people in my classes which is something I couldn't say a few years ago. It is nice to be in a major and seeing the same people often.

Tomorrow our stuff for campus ministry will start with our lunch at 12 and then bible study at 9:30. Normally it is student led but our new pastor will be leading it tomorrow. This is the first time that I will have been able to sit in on one of his studies.

In other news my favorite band, Nickel Creek, of all time will be taking a break at the end of 2007. At least the lead singer Chris Thile will be pursuing a solo career so I won't lose them entirely. However, I have recently taken a liking to the bands King Wilkie and Old Crow Medicine Show. If you like bluegrass at all you should take a look at them.

Good Search

One important thing for a college group to survive is money. We are registered on Good Search.com It is a search engine which donates a portion of proceeds to a charitable organization of your choice. Each search on the site equates to one cent for the group. That can add up fast. Check it out. Specify Christ the King Lutheran Chapel in Mount Pleasant, MI as the charity if you would.

Back to School...Back to Blogging

So it is back to the old university for me. The summer was good but I am glad that I will be getting back to doing things on a good schedule. It is good also to be back with things like Lutheran Student Fellowship. I love my church here and we even get to have a new pastor this year as well.

Reflecting on the idea of my blog a little over a year ago is something I have thought about. I started writing in order to get my thoughts out there and also receive some feedback. Soon however I was overtaken by the numbers game and lost my focus trying to get more people to visit. My attempt this fall is to get back to the idea of getting my thoughts out there.

On that note I would also like to turn my blog to a certain topic in a way. Campus ministry is something that affects me a lot. I would like to make an effort to show what exactly goes on with our group here at CMU be that by things like posting Bible studies and more photos of what goes on around the church. I think a lot of people get lost in the college years and maybe that is something that needs to be talked about a little more.

So in conclusion my goal is to get back to blogging about things I am thinking as well as turning my efforts to explaining exactly what campus ministry is and possibly working towards being a resource for other campus ministry groups be they LSF or Christ on Campus which our organization is also a part of. Here's to at least a good fall worth of thought provoking blogs.
