COVID-19 has had a lasting effect on the entire world, but it has not stopped God from working in the lives of His people, as well as in the world around us. Being at Heritage this fall semester definitely looks different, but it is no less impactful than years before.
The community this year has adjusted quite well to protocols and restrictions, but still manage to connect with each other despite remaining socially distanced. There is rarely a day where you won’t find people connecting in The Bean through mutual homework or playing music, enjoying a game of pool with a friend, or even playing a competitive match of ping pong. At the heart of the Heritage community is a yearning to know God more each and every day and a desire to build relationships with others who love Him as well.
Personally, this semester has definitely been a different one. As a student leader, I want to help foster a community of people loving God first and loving each other well. I do my best to help build the community to be the best experience it can be, while trying not to get distracted by everything I miss about last year.
One lesson that sticks out to me this year is finding my joy in God alone and not only in the experiences He brings. God is continually working this year and it is a joy to simply be a part of what He is doing.
