Recently I saw the movie, "Christopher Robin." I have always been a fan of Winne the Pooh and seeing Christopher Robin brought back so many nostalgic memories. The last 5Fs is Fun so I thought there wouldn't be a better way of talking about fun and adventure through the view of some of the characters from our favorite 100-acre woods.

1. “Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something”-Winnie the Pooh

Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing you can do for yourself. In the midst of papers, tests, projects, work, you need to make time for yourself to do nothing at all and just relax. That "nothing" can be staying in bed all day watching Netflix, laying by the pool, reading, etc, whatever you do to relax and have fun. It essentially does lead to the best kind of something because you are taking time out of your busy schedule to breathe and have some "you" time. By doing this, you are allowing yourself to physically and mentally wind down and rebuild that energy you need for the week to come.

2. "We just need a leap of faith"-Tigger

Taking that leap of faith to try anything new. This could be new food, a new place, a new job or internship that can change your life in ways that you may not have thought possible. Taking a small or big chance on something can be scary, but it can help you make memories and look back at your college years and say "Ya, that was one and done" or "Wow, I'm so glad I did that or tried that," because whatever it is might become your new favorite adventure. Regardless, you made memories that you can look back on without any regrets.

3. "I do love a party"-Winnie the Pooh

It's time to party! Get a group of friends and have a fun gathering! Whether that be playing board games, going out to dinner, laser tagging, bowling, or a movie, go out and enjoy yourself and that adventure. It is important that enjoy time with your friends, so go out and have fun! Everything is so much more fun when you have a group of friends with you! Doing something active or relaxing, it is the quality time you get with your friends. You are spending that quality time with the people that mean the most to you and when college is over, you won't only have the best memories, but you will also walk away with the best of friends.

4. "What day is it?"-WTP "It's today"-Christopher Robin "My favorite day."-WTP

Enjoy each day. Don't worry so much about the future. It's so easy to get caught up in planning for the future, especially those who are Seniors. Although it can be easy to plan 5 or 10 years down the line, enjoy the present because, in the blink of an eye, it will be 5 years later. Be present in the day. Be present with your friends. Be present with your family. We can be so distracted with today's technologies, but it won't kill you to put down the phone for a couple hours. The day may not go exactly how you imagined or planned, but each day good or bad will help you grow so enjoy each day and take it as it is because college does go by fast.

5. There's always time for a smackeral of wonder"-Winnie the Pooh

If you are wondering what a smackeral is, it's Pooh's honey. If you don't know already, He loves to constantly eat his honey! The point here is to be adventurous and creative with what you eat. Campus food can get old and you want something fresh and new and as college students, we're always hungry! There's always time for a yummy snack that you might not have had before! Pinterest is the answer. It always is. Whether you live in a dorm or apartment, Pinterest has it all so you can enjoy your very own personal and delicious "smackeral of wonder"

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

2500
Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

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

3363
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.
