Memories are just a start with what I took away from my trip to Israel. I gained new friends and strengthened current ones. I learned about the land of Israel and its geography, the people, the culture of the Israelites, but the knowledge of understanding the Gospel that occurred here is what made the biggest impact on me. The Bible that is written in black and white lettering turns to vivid color with a trip to the land where much of it was penned. I am continually being enriched by this trip.

Journalist explores the concept of community

By |2019-02-07T13:44:35+00:00November 24th, 2018|Features|

What is community? Community is defined in the dictionary as; a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. But I would argue that community is much more than a group of people hanging out together. Community is a feeling you receive when you're in fellowship with someone with a purpose. Community is more than just an idea it is an emotion. Community is what forms friend groups at school to national governments. Every human being on this earth has a purpose. Whether that is a career in the workplace or raising a family everyone is here for a reason. Human bodies aren't meant to do life alone. Our minds naturally want to be a part of something. This applies to all ages. For a high schooler, there are many different things we strive to be or be a part of.
