5 Study Snacks To Get You Through Finals Season
Jessie Granader

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Decorations radiate from every street corner, holiday music can be heard from miles away, and a fresh blanket of snow makes the world seem happier. Life is full of magic and bliss, well, for everyone except college students. With holiday cheer comes finals season, the most stressful few weeks of the semester. Students lock themselves in the library for hours on end, attempting to cram as much information into their minds as possible before exams begin. The only thing to look forward to during those painful hours are the meals that break up the day. However, it’s too cold to walk all the way across campus in search of delicious food. What places deliver straight to the library you may ask? Here are five yummy places in Ann Arbor that bring the food to you, ones that will keep you motivated and focused throughout the day.

1. Fleetwood Diner

It’s early in the morning, and you’re already sitting in a cubicle at the library. What will motivate you to start that 10 page paper due on Monday? A greasy omelet from the diner, of course. In the mood for a warm stack of chocolate chip pancakes? You’re in luck, because the menu satisfies all cravings. Although Fleetwood is a car ride away, the diner delivers right to the library! It’s the perfect way to fill that empty stomach and get energized for the long day that awaits.

2. Salads Up

Lunch time! It’s three hours in to studying, and your tummy is grumbling again. You need something nice and light to refuel, however, a meal that won’t put you into a tiresome food coma. Luckily, a customized chopped salad will do the trick. A quick pick me up snack that will both give your mind a break, and keep you going through the afternoon!

3. Espresso Royale

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to have an extra-large coffee brought right to your study space. However, Espresso Royale is right in the center of campus, and across the street from wherever you decide to work. There is only so much studying one can do before their eyes begin to close, exhausted from sitting in the same spot for so long. Getting up and moving around is the perfect way to give your mind a rest and reboot with a refreshing drink!

4. Pizza House

It’s getting late. It’s dark outside, the temperature is dropping, and your starting to dread the cold walk back to your dorm later. Your mind is about to explode, and its defiantly time for comfort food to keep you nice and toasty. Devouring warm cheesy bread, chicken fingers, and french fries is the only way to get through that final push of studying.

5. Insomnia Cookies

Congrats, the day is done! Now it’s time to celebrate with some scrumptious sweets. Order a box of cookies right to your dorm room because, simply put, you deserve it. Picture it now: 6 freshly baked cookies that break at the touch. How could one say no to that?! Good luck to all, and have a healthy, happy, and hungry finals season!

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
