On Friday, we kicked off our winter quarter with a special Friday night bible study that we called WInter Welcome Night. We decorated the courtyard and cooked a lot of food to make the atmosphere as welcoming as possible. Then, as we went into our usual LSB 1001 room, we started with a special skit about identity. The skit caught all our attentions when the lines started to reverse revealing a deeper reading. Afterwards, Mike gave the message from Mark 5 and talked about real freedom and the inner demons within us.
It was an awesome night and could not have been done without our student helpers and our friends from Berkeley who took a mission trip down here to sow seeds of faith and build God's kingdom at UCSB.
