The Banquet and Beyound
SO…The end as saddly approached us. However, the end could not have gone better. Mary Hulst, our program director, was back for the wrap up. Her talk “Now What…” challenged us to take what we have learned here back to Calvin. To have goals going into the fall semester, to practice our leadership skills for the good of others, to have accountability with one another etc. And the Bible study did not lack at all either. It was fantastic. We focused on Psalm 133 and 134:
1 How good and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
down upon the collar of his robes.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.
1 Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD
who minister by night in the house of the LORD.
2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary
and praise the LORD.
3 May the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth,
bless you from Zion.
These are Psalms of Celebration! And that is exactly what the Ladership Challenge Institute of Calvin College at Snow Mountain Ranch for the summer of 2007 did. Pictures can speak 1,000 words…right? That is what they say…
The small group leaders all recieved gifts from those who were in their group. Here is Dan Riemersma recieving his gift
Tony Terpstra recieving his
Molly Fuller recieving hers

And last but not least Monica Lackman recieving her small group leader gift
Here are the leaders feeling very blessed, happy, and thankful after recieving their gifts.
