Community Is Built at Floor Worship!

It’s a desire we all have, found deep within the human heart: to have a group of people who have your back, a circle of friends who can support, encourage, celebrate, and comfort you. Building community takes vulnerability and sacrifice. On the other side of intentional work, community provides accountability and close friendships

From the Head of Joyful Noise

Professor Jay LeBlanc had already been a close family friend for years now. However, last chapel, I got curious about his involvement with Joyful Noise, Huntington University’s student worship band. So, this past week I asked Jay if I could informally interview him about his experience as head of Joyful Noise.

Living Out Your Faith at HU

If you asked me four years ago if I thought going to a Christian university would push me to become stronger in my faith, I would have told you the choice was too safe. I had so many doubts, but this one was the loudest: If I was surrounded by like-minded people and consistent messages of faith, would I be prepared to live in the “real world” when I graduated?

The Perks of Floor Worship

Looking back at last year, one of my regrets is that I did not participate much in floor worship. Luckily, I am only a sophomore with plenty of time to make up for what I missed and encourage others to do the same.

More Than a Credit: My Spiritual Life Experience

With the busyness of classes, internships, practices, and social lives, the individual importance of each spiritual life experience is sometimes lost. We tend to turn these meaningful times of worship into a 45-minute period of waiting for a QR code. Drawing from my personal experience at a chapel service, I hope that you can see the invaluable impact that spiritual life events can have in your life if you are attentive and have an open heart.

The UB Legacy

My family knew little about the Church of the United Brethren in Christ when I visited Huntington University as a prospective student. Nevertheless, my Christian parents and I were confident that HU would support my spiritual growth. I know now that this had much to do with HU’s relationship with the UB denomination.

What’s Important: Spiritual Atmosphere

The right place for you will align with your core beliefs and provide an environment that will encourage you to grow in your faith. Both doctrine and a personal sense of connection are going to be important.

Reflecting on My First Semester

Before the school year began, I was racked with uncertainty about the workload and how well I could keep up. Additionally, I wondered how I would manage to balance my schoolwork, social life, mental health, etc. Nevertheless, my first semester went surprisingly smoothly.

Nothing But the Truth

Can I tell you the honest truth? Writing about the “chases truth” Forester trait is tricky, more difficult (for me at least) than many of the other Forester traits. I’ve been writing about the Spirit of a Forester for years, yet right now I’m carefully considering every word I write. And I think that’s a good thing. I wouldn’t want to handle the truth lightly.

How to be creative…even when you aren’t.

Creativity is a part of the Forester identity. So where does that leave people who don’t consider themselves creative?
