who knew beanbags were so fun?

Last night we had our first official college group of the new semester (ice skating was fun last week but we really didn't get a chance to talk about stuff). It was a great night. I shared the new mission statement and vision of the group. We learned a name game and I told them if they could complete it in under 2 minutes, I would buy them a cake later that night (I'm not sure what possessed me to offer that). They did it in 38 seconds. Cake it is!!

I gave my talk on evangelism and it I mean, let's be honest. We're always our own worst critics, aren't we? I thought it was better than the last time I spoke (which I felt horrible about!) but ultimately I need to remember it's NOT about me. God can speak through anyone. I just hope the main point of the message was heard.

After an awesome time of worship, I went to the grocery store with a couple peeps and we bought a big ol' chocolate cake and some ice cream. When we got back, everyone got on a sugar high and then the ruckus began. Before I knew it, the students had piled all the blankets, pillows, and beanbags (from our meeting room) on top of each other and were doing all sorts of stunts. Cartwheels, sommersaults, flips, dives, falling backwards from couches, leaps, was pandemonium. I am so shocked no one got hurt. I took a million pictures. Here are a few.
