Thurtene Carnival

Today I got to be a kid again. Each year, one of WashU's secret societies, Thurtene, hosts the nation's largest student run carnival with fun rides, carnival foods, and awesome greek facades with performances.

Lauren, Kenith and I first rode the fun dizzy rides before eating delicious funnel cake covered in a melted Snicker's ice cream bar. Then we went to watch the Beta/Chi-O performance about one nerd's quest to be cool and a book-hater's metamorphosis into a book worm. It was such a great show! The songs were witty, and the script included references from pop culture, classic novels, and WashU culture, which enabled audience members from all ages to enjoy the show.

In the play today, Beta/Chi-O were teaching the kids that reading is fun. When I was a kid, one of my favorite things was to lay in bed and read for hours and get lost in a book. I think that's why I like inductive Bible studies so much. When analyzing a passage, it means so much more when you insert yourself into the story as one of the characters and try to see things from their perspective. In GIG, we've been slowly following Jesus and this week we will follow him to the cross. We'll see how that goes!
