I learned that becoming a member of the Body of Christ does not mean uniformity, but rather diversity. Acknowledging our differences is more holy and healing than ignoring them is.

This went so deep - I cried. Thank you. I will blog more in the days to come - for now I just chew on it as a word from God. Blessings


Who has come closer to describing the YTI community? This post brings me back to the family I found this summer at Candler.

I might add to this the feeling of looking into a fellow human's eyes and truly seeing the light of God in them--whether that meant a homeless person, someone with an opposite ideology, another scholar, or someone I never would have noticed before--and experiencing the same type of love from others.

And I would say that YTI is not just about my personal transformation; it is about the transformation of the world. We stared down complex issues of social justice and discovered God in places where we did not expect. I know sometimes people go on mission trips and see Christ in the people they are helping; they say that they are suprised by people being thankful even though they have so little. I think at YTI it was different in that we experienced God by living in community with both our fellow scholars and also people of wider Atlanta. YTI exposed our hearts to the beauty and challenge of a public theological struggle--and opened us to a type of relationship we never even knew existed.

Amen and amen from this 1993 YTI alum.


Hi! I stumbled across your page as I was looking for information about YTI. I was accepted for this summer. I was wondering what I should be expecting.

If you could email me about it, that would be amazing. I'm really looking forward to YTI and even just learning more about it.

Hello. If anyone is looking for an fha refinance, please let me know. I have been in the mortgage business for 15 years and am a specialist when it comes to an fha refinance and I can get you a great deal. I know this might be a little off topic, but with the economy, I think that we all need as much help as we can get to lower our payments.
