Well, the time has come. Summer break is over and school has started again (unless you're a quarter school, which means you have another few weeks). For many of you, today is your first day back to classes.

This weekend, we saw the latest string in public protests from White Supremisists and Neo-Natzis- this time in Charlottesville, VA, the home of the University of Virginia.

When you’re in college, typically summer goes one of two ways. You either are super busy with a summer internship or summer job, doing fun things on the weekend, and lucky if you make it to church on Sunday.

This summer has been the hotest on record in Salt Lake City. With no AC and no end in sight to the +100° days, complaining about the heat to my cat while I slowly melt into the fabrics of my couch has become the norm. But complaining is like eating too much candy- at first it tastes so good but then after awhile you just feel terrible and sick.

For me summer is often a time of reconsidering. A new routine, new people, an opportunity to reinvent myself. It’s a time of comparison which makes me wonder: Did I take the right job? Travel adventurously enough? Or caption my pictures well? It makes me doubt whether or not God has me right where he wants me.

In this excerpt from the Sermon on the Mount, we see Jesus challenge some different narratives with examples of people doing good works. So take a deep breath, and let’s jump in!

When I was in school, I wanted to have a good time, be one of the guys, and get the attention of the pretty girls. Pretty standard for a fraternity guy I guess.

This week we're going to engage with Scripture in a different way through a practice called "Imaginative Prayer." Bear with me, it's not that weird. Developed by St. Ignatius in the mid 1500s as one of his Spiritual Exercises, Imaginative Prayer provides an opportunity to enter specific moments in Jesus’ life and thereby share his experience.

I’m kind of a terrible runner. I was that kid who dreaded running the mile in gym class. I only played community soccer because they had to let every kid play at least half the game. Running has never, and still doesn’t, come naturally to me.

I love long, slow summer days. Hot days mean eating watermelon outside, swimming in the lake or laying by the pool, and reading a book while watching summer thunderstorms roll through town. At least at our house, hot days gives us a chance to relax a little bit, which is a different pace from our normal hectic lives.

Credit to my parents; they raised me to be fairly independent.  And I think they succeeded.  By age 21, I had driven across the country by myself a couple times, lived abroad for a semester where few people spoke English, could do my own taxes, and add the proper amount of hot water to Ramen noodles.

Getting Started

Welcome to week 1 of our Summer Weekly Devotional! Each week, we'll be posting a devotional written by Greek IV staff. Set aside 5 or 10 minutes to read the devotional and reflect on the passage. Our hope is that you will grow in your faith this summer through regular time in God's Word. In today's passage, Jesus is with his disciples at his friend Simon's house.

The sun is out. The weather is starting to warm up. And you can’t help but notice that you just feel... happier. Probably because school is out... and you’re getting more Vitamin D.

You go to stand before chapter. Your knees are shaking as you announce your chapter Bible study, inviting your entire pledge class to join you. It’s a huge risk. But you do it anyway.

Spring break is a time to relax, recharge, and depending on your climate- get some sun. After winter, our bodies are due for some vitamin D. Unfortunately, despite how it appears on our Instagrams, getting sprung into spring after a long winter can bring about anxiety and an increase in negativity about our bodies.

St. Patrick's Day 2007.

A drunk stranger sleeping in my living room. Roommates passed out in their bedrooms.

My junior year of high school I gave up fried food for Lent… and sweets… and eating between meals.

A few years ago I volunteered to coach a basketball team of 2nd and 3rd graders in a league my church ran. We had one player on our team who was pretty talented for his age, but he never wanted to pass the ball to anyone else. He was a classic ball-hog and his teammates began to resent him for not sharing.
