Jonathon Bascom: Extruding Leadership
Week Eight of the Calvin program brought along with it Professor Bascom’s talk on humbling yourself as a leader by being in a “desert.” Similar to Moses in the desert, said Bascom, God extrudes his leaders in a manner that we may not fully understand.
On Tuesday evening the Calvin group drove up to Meadow Creek Reservoir for its annual retreat. We were excited to have professor Bascom join us as we went canoeing, swimming and exploring. At five in the evening the guys and girls separated for dinner, reflection and sleeping. It rained nearly the whole night, but only enough to dampen our tents- not our spirits. In the morning we reconvened for some much needed breakfast by the reservoir. Overall, the retreat was a huge success.
