Although I’ve not been too terribly active on social media this summer, I’m preparing to power down for a few weeks. Maybe you’ve done this before — and maybe you’ve just thought about it. But I find that if I don’t do this from time to time that I experience two different things: I […]
What makes for a good book? I mean, what makes for a really good book? You know there’s a difference — but have you ever been able to pinpoint what differentiates the good books from the really good books — for you? Is it the writing style of the author? Is it the way […]

It seems both simple and obvious, but while you’re out and about on campus — remember to smile. As I’ve walked around on this first day of class, I’ve been surprised by how many people I’ve got off-guard with something as simple as a smile. It may be that they’re new to campus — and […]
Question: how many live events (talk shows, concerts, etc) have you seen that follow this format? Ice Breaker Skit/Announcements 3 Songs Talk Maybe one more song/Pray I’m guessing none of them. I’m also guessing that these elements look very familiar to you. For as long as I’ve been around collegiate ministry (this will be my […]
For me and my campus ministries colleagues, the summer of 2013 has been an unusual one with time-intensive administrative reviews, reports, and budget prioritization spreadsheets. So, while there are very few students around, it has been less of a change of pace than we typically experience. For that reason, I have been especially excited about […]

Faith ON Campus is excited to announce the next Blogathon:
Back to School | August 6-8, 2013!

That’s what the Back to School Blogathon is all about!
When I think of July, I think of this…
That’s not me — and I’ve never been to this location — but it’s still what I think of when I think of July.
Well, for starters it’s typically so hot and steamy here in the greater Nashville area that if I’m outside I prefer to be someplace wet — where I can actually enjoy being outside.
But I also like the peace and relaxation this image evokes. It speaks of a slower pace of life, and inner rest, that I don’t think enough of us experience very often.
