College Freshman

An Open Letter to College Freshmen.

I came across this article as I was perusing my regular cavalcade of blogs. Some great notes here and a good reminder for those like me who, while not freshman, can still benefit from some of the points Matt has listed. And, of course, it has some really beneficial stuff for those who are freshman.

Take some time to read it. I hope it sparks something that will stick with you in a thoughtful and engaging way!

Blessings 🙂

Dear College Freshmen,

Congratulations on getting into the university of your dreams.  And if it’s not of your dreams, congratulations anyway.  You have the opportunity before you to join the 10% of people in the world who have a college degree.  That doesn’t make you smart, at least not on its own.  But it does make you rare, and that’s something.

Blue Like Orthodoxy: When Donald Miller met G.K. Chesterton | Mere Orthodoxy | Christianity, Politics, and Culture.

I read this article this morning. Great Post by Matt over at Mere O!

I especially like his comments which simultaneously defend his internet commentary while also debating Miller’s hipster-laced barbs.

It’s a good link to look at a wonderful comparison and contrasts between, really, three authors and their points of view, even if one just is commentary. So, if you have some time over a cup of coffee this morning or a glass of tea in the afternoon, check out the link above and give treat yourself to this article!

 So let me be as clear as possible and take an aggressive stand:  I have read G.K. Chesterton, I have even written an introduction for a book by G.K. Chesterton, and Donald Miller is no G.K. Chesterton. – See more at: http://mereorthodoxy.com/blue-like-orthodoxy-when-donald-miller-met-g-k-chesterton/#more-125265
