Day 4: Community
Now this picture was taken yesterday but it’s my project and my rules. These beautiful people are just a part of a loving community of incredible people I spent almost 3 months with. “Community” is one of those words that get thrown around in the church and many don’t know what it means. I still forget. But times like this summer remind me. 30 college age kids, 1 house, totally worth it. We certainly weren’t the Brady Bunch. Our problems couldn’t be solved in 45 mins and some laughs. But we were united; not by our own doing but the work of Yahweh. One staffer, Edmond Camp, stated it perfectly. “I am thankful not just for the community God called here, but the one he built.” Yahweh build your kingdom here, in us, with us. Amen.

Day 3: Give Us Rest
Today is the first day of church back in Rock Hill. To be home is so wonderful. I picked this song but is gets me every time. The chorus is “Oh great love of God/Who takes away the sin of all of us, gone forever”. That right there is why we can truly rest on this Sabbath. All of our sin and failures are gone, forever taken by the Thief in the Night. I’m reminded how awesome this act was when I see the lives that have been made new at church. No you don’t need to go to church to be redeemed, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t. I mean Jesus shows up! (at Elevation Church - Rock Hill)
So I forgot to do yesterday because of moving and hanging out with this girl and her husband. Rhianna and Sam have been such a blessing to me an Insta pic does nothing of the credit to be given. These two are heading to Austin and I will miss them always. Spending last night with them was a joy and a half. I hope everyone can have friends like these.

This is the first day of my last year here at Winthrop. It is also the first day of a project. Each day I will take one picture of the day and post it here. This will be to pursue a passion for pictures and to force myself to share with people my life. Day 1: Moving in was HARD. We are just now calling it quits and we aren’t even done. And this is only 2 of the 5 roommates! But this has been a time for working together and recognizing rest. I’m excited for this year!
