Summer is a slower time for campus ministry and that is a beautiful thing. Campus ministry types like to say we cram 12 months of work into 9, so slowing down during the summer is healthy and needed. But, there are still a number of students who are around Boston, so we are initiating a gathering called DIG. I can’t give away what it stands for (there’s a contest), but it’s to do with Matt 13:44.
The idea this summer is to create community among students from different schools who might not otherwise connect, to explore the “virtuous circle” of scripture/stories/examples/community/practices, and to have fun. And since we are focusing our efforts on this one gathering we get to use the strengths of most of our staff which helps with things like vacation and sharing the work. I’m excited to see how this summer experiment works out!
