Berry College and the Mountains
I spent a day last week trying to get my legs back into hiking shape. After spending a couple of hours hiking up a mountain (what we call a mountain in Georgia), I was huffing, puffing, sweating, and really ready to find the top. I heard a noise behind me and turned around to see some guy "running" up the mountain. He had his running shoes on and a little backpack carrying his water with a convenient hose to drink when he needed to. I was very impressed -- and put in my place!!
There is nothing like getting out in God's creation away from the city noise, cars, cell phones, and computers. I always feel refreshed and renewed after a good hike in the wilderness.
Sunday night I was able to speak at the Mt. Berry Church, the student church service at Berry College located in northwest Georgia. Chaplain Jon Huggins leads a tremendous ministry with college students. The fellowship was excellent and the student worship band was incredible!! Preached on the resurrection appearance of Jesus from John 20:19-24. Check out http://www.mountberrychurch.com.
