Every summer I also volunteer at a summer camp at my church. During this camp the kids play games, get exercise, eat, make crafts, and have devotional. All three of these things have involved me reading at some point in time. This relates to Literacy Express because I was given another opportunity to do something that is second nature to
Religion in a Secular campus. In “Chicken Soup Effect”; by Gibbison,Henry,& Perkins-Brown (2001), the article talked about how recreational activities contribute the everyday life of a student, especially in their studies/educational life. In order to know more about how spiritual recreation effects on school performance, I interviewed Jimmy Flores, a second year NPB Pre-Med major that practice the Christian denomination of Catholicism who is also one of the most hard working person I’ve ever met in college. For him, practicing spiritual activities isn’t just about going to church and pay, but also reading and studying the bible, going to communion activities and also having special diet which called lent that limit their craving and bodily desires. Since Jimmy Flores is
I started to indulge myself into music when I joined my church’s choir in 3rd grade. I was a shy child growing up and that made a lot of things difficult for me, for example making friends and being a part of group activities. This shy phase was apart of me all of my life; however, once I went to high school I changed. I had to take a music class and I thought that it would be easy for me to do choir because I was in my church’s choir for majority of my grammar school and junior high years. When I was in class I was able to take part in everything and participate, well it took a few days for me to warm up to the new environment.
If you’re playing in the out field, you accept the challenge and become the best out fielder you can be. If you complain about it, expect more of playing the bench. By complaining, you as a player are simply saying. That you are not a team player and you are only out for yourself. And your not willing to show you have heart to play where ever the coach puts you.
Service Learning at Camp Ketcha For my service learning, I volunteered in their nature-based preschool that is open to children with developmental disabilities, though not all of the children have disabilities. Camp Ketcha is dedicated to showing kids and adults the value of the outdoors: Camp offers a world of experience that no other classroom can. At Ketcha, we strive to create this world every day! Ketcha was established in 1964 and has created wonderful memories for youth and adults alike throughout the years. Our Ketcha team currently has a wealth of camp & outdoor experience that guides our work each day.
You can say I love you to whoever and whenever, but do you really say it for the right reason? Love is not an emotion. Action is how love is shown. Doing something nice for someone like mowing their grass, unloading groceries, or even talking to them when they are lonely is showing love. I cannot help but to think back to the verse in the Bible, 1 John 3:18 which says, “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” I also love the quote, “If love were just an emotion, then God couldn’t command it.
I have maintained believing in my religion by performing many actions. For instance, I go to church every Sunday, and I like to volunteer helping teach little kids on Fridays. Additionally, I read the bible, and pray every morning and every night. These actions I have done helped me maintain my religion throughout middle school. My following personal value is keeping a healthy relationship with
As they “sing sin” (line 4 and 5), they show an enormous “level of comfort with the sin because they are singing it to the world” with no fear of judgement. (Bloom) The pool players have a desirable character but handle it so nonchalantly. They believe that “there is little hope for the future, so they don't need school, they stay out late, they fight, they drink, and engage in sexual mischievous behavior It does not matter because they will be dead soon” perhaps to
Mayzie learns that fame and fortune is not everything and that family and friends are important in our lives. The same can be said about God. All of these material things that we think we need to survive we really do not need because nothing replaces God, family, and friends. We are all children of God and he is who we put our faith in to help guide us along the way. As christians we know that God is always with us but sometime we can still forget that fact because we get distracted.
These items include toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and any other necessity they do not always have access to. My church works with the church of Elk Creek to set up for the camp a few days before it begins. When camp starts, my fellow youth members and I assumed the role of summer camp counselors for the children of the Elk Creek area. Many children there do not have all the luxuries that we have back in Garner, so the experience was very eye opening. For many of the campers, this is the only event they have all summer long.
The founders of the organization personally believe that there is only one, true God. God’s plan for them is to share the love of Jesus Christ everywhere they go through their acts of kindness and love (“What Drives Us”). By helping these children they are fulfilling the plans the Lord has set out for them. The other reason that Helping Honduras Kids has spent their time and money making the abandoned children of Honduras’ lives better is because of the commandments written in the Bible. Matthew 22:37-39 states, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school. It is always fun to be around children and teach them about the words of God. if I am indeed inducted into national honor Society I plan to take on more leadership roles to improve the community. I want to be the person that people look up to and say goodbyes from. I hope to be able to help others in anyway shape or form I possibly can and inspire others the same way that others before, had inspired me.
The wounded are everywhere. People need to know there is unconditional love for them. Life is the mission field that I have the pleasure and privilege of walking in my mission field daily. There are many times I have had the pleasure of assisting ministries with larger, organized mission events such as The Houston Food Bank where every two weeks I volunteer serving the student body and their families with much need food to assist them with remaining in school. During this time, the opportunities to engage in longer conversation are possible and I do utilize this time to speak of the love of God to my
Cathy was a man in touch with his spirituality, and so was his wife, Jeanette. He was always giving money to good organizations, usually created by Christians with a good heart. He’s known for having over 150 foster children and taking kids home to his house for dinner. He led a youth ministry at his church, helping young men to go on the right path in life. He established almost 20 foster homes within his lifetime (homes that house a group of foster kids), and made it his goal to guide the youth in the path of God and the church.
