Having graduated from seminary in the spring, I knew I still had more to learn about God and my faith. My summer in Bryce showed me in an incredibly tangible way that I must continue to learn, grow and pursue understanding about my own faith in order to be able to speak with any sort of confidence with those who do not believe as I do.
It’s one thing to know that being a life-time learner and persistent pursuer of God is a good idea, and another to be faced with those who are just as passionate about opposing viewpoints and belief systems.
This challenged my beliefs in ways that seminary never did, and while incredibly difficult, it also opened a lot of doors for further study and development of my own faith.
