The Habit of Service

The Habit of Service

Last week we started our service opportunities. This takes on the form of assisting the community by helping in areas such as after school programs, medical centers, working on farms, and so forth. As these will be weekly activities, they will become an intricate part to our lives. It’s interesting to think of the effect they will have on us; how service affects individuals. It’s not just a matter of preference, “Oh, this person likes to …

So Much More Than a Sandwich

So Much More Than a Sandwich

A couple weeks ago the nation celebrated the life of Truett Cathy. On September 8, 2014 the man who created the chicken sandwich was wholly united with his God in heaven.

It was a Monday morning and my SLC partner and I were making pancakes for our hall when she told me that Truett Cathy passed away. The news didn’t come as a complete shock, because I knew Truett had lived a full life and …

Lessons From The Garden

Lessons From The Garden

It’s cliché, but life really is like a garden. Not only are there applicable analogies with the soil, sunlight, weeding, and so forth, there is also the experience and change of seasons. We are all in the same season right now here at Impact 360. At the beginning of last week, we were discussing with Dr. John Basie the parable of Jesus concerning the sower and the seeds (Matthew 13). The seed represents the …

A New Year

A New Year

It’s officially been over a week now since we’ve all moved into our new homes. The syllabus has been distributed, the papers have been started, the excitement is leveling, and now a choice is at hand. To resolve or not resolve, that is the question. It would be easy to take things as they come, to be passive and disengaged, but what benefit is there to that? Ease, perhaps, but only temporarily, and surely not as …

Let the Adventure Begin

Let the Adventure Begin

It’s here. It’s FINALLY here! Tuesday the newest class of Impact 360 students descended on the small town of Pine Mountain, Georgia. With U-Haul’s in tow, boxes in hand and even a pink moped charged and ready to go, 41 students received the keys to their new dorm rooms.

This is a class full of go-getters. Hours, and even days, before the official check-in process began the class of 2015 was standing outside their locked doors Instagramming pictures …

5 Things the “Quarter-Life Crisis” Taught Me

5 Things the “Quarter-Life Crisis” Taught Me

Today is September 1st, 2014 and I have been 22 for almost six months. As graduation shifts from a distant goal to a nearing reality, I’ve decided to take a moment, drink a pumpkin spice latte (it is September now after all) and reflect on the last 180 days or so.

As I think back, for starters, the past few months of my life have more closely resembled “Wrecking Ball” than any Taylor Swift music …

Dream Big.

Dream Big.

I’m not sure about where you live, but around here kids are starting back to school. Big yellow school buses are filling the streets this morning, and blackboards will soon be filled with names and equations and “I will not…” statements over and over and over.

But this is an exciting time of year and one in which kids of all ages will start to dream.

With shaky handwriting they’ll scribble:

“I want to be an astronaut.”
“I want …

An empty leader has nothing left to give.

An empty leader has nothing left to give.

Sometimes leaders get empty. Sometimes leaders break down. Sometimes leaders lose their way. And often, it’s because they made one critical mistake: They tried to manage other people before they managed themselves.

The temptation is to think that being a “servant leader” means constantly putting the needs of others ahead of your own . The idea is that to really give as a leader, to be available and accessible at all times, you have to put …
