This week at BSSM for us First Years was “Transitioning Well” week. It was crazy different as our schedule was all wonky due to not having our usual school building.
It has been so amazing though! Monday was the last party with my Revival Group. We got to go on a boat all together, and from there I got to see a dam I had watched a documentary about. The views were stunning the whole way, bright and sunny, and quality time was great.
Tuesday was the last time my Small Group got together. We had a picnic, and I loved every moment of hearing their excitement about life after First Year.
Yesterday was not a “last time”, however we did have school, specifically the transitioning well class. They talked about laughing at lies, feeding on wholesome spiritual food instead of “fast food” for the summer, going low and asking whatever church we are going back to permission to serve how they need, or even simply just showing up to church, keeping good community around us, making sure we are intentional in staying connected with people who can keep us accountable, developing our history with God, and just overall putting to practice all the tools we have been handed so that we can come back to Second Year with more than we left First Year with.
Today was my last city service, and although I was so sleepy I enjoyed every moment of being with my team. They made waking up early every Thursday to go out and get stretched and bless the city totally worth it.
Today was also my core group’s last time of meeting. I loved every moment of sitting and spending time with them.
Although it is sad to think I will not get to be around all these amazing people like this again, it is so exciting to see how much we have all grown, and where we are all going, and how much we are all going to thrive!
