As I’m sure the majority of you know, I am the Student Council President for Tyndale University College 2008-09. With this post comes some pretty heady stuff – I’m still coming to grips that I am actually representing 450-odd students to Administration, Faculty, Staff, and, to a lesser extent, the Community at large. I don’t want to go into this lightly.
So, on top of the logistical work that needs to be done this summer (a.k.a lots of meetings), I will be preparing myself spiritually in the coming four months. To do this, I’m going to need to adopt a few spiritual disciplines.
Being a Christian University, all Student Leadership members at Tyndale are to adopt 2 Spiritual Disciplines, one of which is observing Sabbath. The other is one of our choosing.
Sabbath, for me, is way easy. I know how to disconnect. I’m always trying to make those boundaries a reality in life and so keeping Sabbath for me might mean an extra step. A more literal Sabbath. I’m going to think about that one, and see if I can’t come up with something later.
The other discipline I think I’m going to pursue is the use of icons within meditation. More on iconography and the meditation of icons later as well.
I think on the whole, I’ll be looking into all of them and trying them out on a weekly basis or something. I’m really into the old stuff these days – traveling the old ways is my pursuit for the Summer. Come join me, you may learn something.
