Farewell Tour

I remember it like it was yesterday, writing my first blog. Nervous as I typed on the keyboard to introduce that 18 year old has undergone tremendous change in four years. As the last semester of undergrad is underway for me, I can’t help but get emotional as I say goodbye to the place I’ve […]

learning me.

moving into my last semester here at BU, I’m trying to find a balance between being nostalgic, living in the present and thinking about the future. looking back to a similar moment in time, my senior year of high school, I can only appreciate the environments I’ve been placed in that have allowed me to […]

an institution

“Well, the Church is an institution, Mike. Made of men. It’s passing. My faith is in the eternal. I try to separate the two.” -Spotlight This quote pretty much sums up my view of the church and my faith since coming to college. I needed to separate the two so I could keep my faith. […]

week seven.

seven weeks into the school year. now is the time of repetition. now is the time of stress. now is the time of complacency. Going through my last time of experiencing this, I feel this moment a bit more. being a senior, i’ve been tasked recently with giving advice. freshman to juniors ask me. how’d you […]

Year Four

As a sit on this Monday night after reflecting on my spiritual journey tonight at our Marsh meeting, I thank God for the progress made thus far.

my friend.

I think spirituality has become very different for me over my time at Boston University. I don’t think that I have many spiritual practices because spirituality has become so casual to me. Since coming to college I have stood in the belief that Jesus is my best friend and that he walks with me everywhere […]

Three Years Down

I’ve learned a few things over my three years so far. I hate goodbyes. The idea of having to say goodbye to someone who obviously means a lot to you is just bizarre. Sadly, it is that time of year where you have to say goodbye. Friends are off to new jobs, and new schools. […]

send me your location.

Around 2am, 5 hours before I had to be at Marsh Chapel for Sunrise Service, I became disconnected with the sentiments that I was scheduled to deliver at our annual Sunrise Service. I had written a brief story about grief and dealing with grief as someone from the inside. One of my close friends, someone […]

It’s Time Now

It’s been a while, thirty-nine days to be exact. I have taking on so much over the past month and a half that I have neglected something that has been a consistent for me for two years now. This blog. So I have so much to say about what’s been happening in my life and […]

So That We May Get To Know Each Other

I had the opportunity to attend a Wednesday afternoon service at Marsh this week and hear Dean Elmore preach about tribes and the idea that we were placed in these tribes “so that we may get to know each other.” My initial reaction to the service in total was it gave me a sentiment that […]
