What every Christian student needs on their college journey.
By Lesli White posted May 26, 2016
College is an exciting adventure – you are moving away from home, meeting new people and getting your first taste of independence. For the next four or more years, you will be learning a lot – both academic and otherwise. This knowledge will help you grow in many ways, especially as it relates to your faith. In your eagerness to start this new chapter, make sure to keep in mind some important tips that will help you make the most out of your experience, while also helping you to keep Christ front and center. Here are some essentials for every Christian college student.
EC House can help in your new adventure to life.
Don’t choose isolation. In your first years of college, it’s important that you have the experience of community which Ecumenical House affords you. This includes house-mates and intentional living with others your own age. Yes, house-mates will keep you up way too late, and wake you up way too early. Yes, they can drive us up a wall with their habits and behaviors. But your house-mates can be amazing friends and allies. They are also exactly the people God is calling you to love. Don’t wait until you feel the love from them. Embrace them. Love them until you feel love for them. The Bible tells us, “Love is patient, love is kind. It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthian 13: 4, 7-8). Allow your house-mates to see Christ’s love through you and in the weekly meeting, they may show you ways to see love through them. You may have your issues with them, but this is a way to learn how to love, even, through difficulties. In our differences, we learn who we truly are, but also, who we are able to become through transformation in Jesus Christ.
