Looking over the Flattop Mountains in Colorado

Life as a half time student and full time staffer with InterVarsity has proposed plenty of challenges.  Waking up earlier and staying up late trying to juggle all of the responsibilities of top-tier undergraduates and graduates alike are enough to drive someone to the brink.

Knowing this about myself, I decided in summer to go with my younger brother to a hunting trip in Colorado.

(Actually, Sam hunted.  I watched mountains.)

There was something about being still in the mountains, moving slowly and not speaking to avoid being heard – something that allowed me to settle to a point where I could listen to my life enough so I could pick up where I left off this summer.

I’m still in the process of discerning my future with InterVarsity – I’d appreciate your prayers.  Many of you have asked, and I’m grateful to have had friends who genuinely care.

I’m speaking with folks at our national staff conference in January about other opportunities within InterVarsity, as well as exploring a sabbatical, and still also considering opportunities outside of InterVarsity.

All in all, I can honestly say I’m at a proverbial fork in the road, and I covet your prayers.  Times of decision typically draw us close to God, and I sense the next six months will be such for me.

I’ve cleared many of my outside commitments, limited speaking engagements, and have built in a monthly personal retreat day of silence to listen to God.

I’d be grateful for you to pray for me.  I can’t express how thankful I am for the life I’ve been allowed to live in order to lead students to know Jesus.  Thank-you.
