Just saying a formal hello. I’m an alum of the 2011 OCCA summer business program. I used to listen to Ravi Zacharias in the morning on my way to work. The way he spoke and made the logic of God come alive was over-whelming for me. I had no real idea what I was getting into when I applied to OCCA, but, boy, was it ever worth it!!!
I’ve had a few instances to reconnect with RZIM since 2011 and every time I do, it’s like coming to my spiritual home. These people have not only similar beliefs, but similar experiences and relationships with God. I love this! Here, you KNOW God is real. And the beauty of this place is that all questions are fair game. It’s ok to ask the craziest, most difficult, most daring questions and the staff, colleagues, and community not only welcome them, but humbly and honestly attempt to answer ALL of them.
I am not so naive as to say that they (we) will always have an answer or THE answer, but the wonderful thing about this community is that they (we) know the God who has all the answers. God of the universe (and all multi-verses thereof) has all the answers. This is His story (history) and we are all just players in it. When we open our hearts to God, it’s like getting a speaking part in the play. You don’t just want to be in the play, you want to participate in the action. WE GET TO DO THAT!!! We get to participate in God’s award-winning, Oscar-worthy story. How awesome is that!?!?!
Anyway, hello, and thanks for letting me be a part of this community!
