Hello Hello! It’s been a whirlwind first 6 weeks of school, with all of the snow, cancelled class and power shortages! However I have to take a moment and say that my school is awesome and that it takes more than a couple of crazy winter storms to keep Mawrters from trudging on. Although there has been alot of things going on, such as midterms, job interviews (oy vey), and events, I have to say that this semester has been great in the fact that I got to re-connect with the lovely girls of my family group for my church, Grace Covenant Church, GCC. It’s great having a group of people that can totally relate with what’s going on at Bryn Mawr, while also understanding about my goals when it comes to my faith and keeping up with it while at school.
Every Spring, there’s an event for all of the girls in the college fellowship group called Sisters Appreciation. It’s one night where the guys in the fellowship make a fabulous dinner and banquet sort of thing in order to show that we are appreciated in the church. Pretty cool in my opinion. I had never gone to one of these Sisters Appreciation banquets before, just because it never really worked out in my schedule, or I had been away at the time. It was held at Villanova, and all of us got dressed up and were served tasty food and enjoyed stage performances and videos that the guys prepared for us. We were even given roses at the end, how sweet! It made me thankful for such a great group of friends, as well as GCC.
As someone who went to a Christian school in high school, I never really had to go out of my way to find resources when it came to my faith – since things like that were literally all around me. Coming to Bryn Mawr, it was initially hard to find a church and a group of girls I could plug into and share my story. But Bryn Mawr made it really easy for me to locate all of the Christian fellowships on campus – I still remember going to Cambrian Row as a clueless freshman and meeting representative students from various churches, and of course, GCC. I can honestly say that I feel refreshed and thankful that Bryn Mawr made if pretty easy for me to find my fellowship group.
