    • 3 Pages

    Faith in Action Paper I spent my 15 faith service hours volunteering for Feed My Starving Children and I helped the maintenance crew around the school. While I did this I made new friends and grew as a person as well as in my faith. I probably spent about 8 or more of my service hours volunteering for Feed My Starving Children.

    • 1196 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Simon was seven when he saw ripples in the waters of Loch Ness. Over the next weeks, he filled pad after pad of paper with crayon sketches of inky water and a dinosaur-like creature; gripped with the need to know what it was, exactly, that he saw.

Although, I wasn’t surprised because my dad is a social butterfly and he knows everyone. I then took a deep breath getting ready for what will come…

    • 4 Pages

    The movie Agora depicts the escalating conflict between Christians and pagans in Roman Alexandria in the late fourth century under the emperor Theodosius I. Agora’s attempt to describe the dynamic of the conflict between Christianity and pagan Neoplatonism, especially the violence employed and shifting power, falls short of the true historical complexity by simplifying and distorting the historical narrative. Agora’s portrayal of the Christian faction known as the parabalani and their…

As I look at my journey of finding Christ, I see that it has many similarities to Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. My journey of coming to know Christ is much like Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey because I left from my ordinary world to go into the special world, I refused to take on my adventure, and I found out my ordeal, and what would happen if I…

    For as long as I can remember, there is a specific question that I have asked myself: Why am I here and where am I headed? The fact that I am unable to answer this question completely drains my energies. While I am sure that a number of individuals struggle with this question, I have found that I do not even understand the question itself, much less its answer. For the longest time, I remember being so lost that I no longer recognized the person in the mirror. Looking back on my high school days…
