I had a wonderful time getting to know our students during orientation. I’ll blog more on my class — “Doing Community” — later on, but for now here are some of the pictures I grabbed with my little digital snapper. If too many of them look like we had fun, well… I guess we did.
Wendi Kaiser discusses dating and sexuality with P12 students.
Mornings are tough, but these two look plenty awake.
P12 Instructor Curt Mortimer asked the students to look for symbols of God in nature. This student's bird's nest was one such find.
The obligatory campfire photo... because cliches are cliches cuz we like 'em.
Looks peaceful, but when two fish jumped in the boat there were screams a-plenty!
A P12er caught by the evening sun. Thinking... or maybe worn out by a long day.
Some of our classes took place
Project 12ers tossing the proverbial plastic as heaven beams down upon them.
Two P12ers who have been married under a year... and have that newlywed "look of love" for sure!
Homemade pizza, including the whole wheat crusts.... MMMMMmmmm.
Looking over the 2008-2009 Project 12 Schedule.
Why are all these P12 hikers looking so freaked out?!
An eight-legged UFO!?! No, just a large spider hanging directly over our heads. Thus the wide eyes.
Nearly the whole class grins it up for me on this stairway.
Study and worship sometimes blend.
Climbing the tree was easy. Getting down left this P12er skinned up with slivers.
Whoa, girls climb trees better than boys? She didn't get slivers coming down, either.
Sunset over Lake Wildwood, as we think of getting back to Chicago.
