Good friend and GreatHeart Joel Mason led and planned the night this time instead of me, with myself and Holli Durost additionally leading. Matt Frise played violin – a rich gathering. Candlelight, songs new and old, liturgies new and old, and images – all toward an evening of centering on God as the school year begins.
Each student could receive communion and be prayed for by a professor. As well, each student placed a small stone in a shared basin representing their willingness to follow God and throw their lot in with this community over the course of the year.
It was a lovely night.
