It was quite an eventful weekend here at Hope, the best so far, in my opinion. There were so many cool things going on around campus, including the Christmas tree lighting and 80’s Rollerskating Night! I also had the opportunity to attend the Delight muffin and painting party; Delight is a woman’s worship group here on campus.
Friday night, a few girls and I went to the Christmas tree lighting. It was so lovely. They had sugar cookies, hot chocolate, hot pretzels, and a few other warm treats to keep our frozen fingers from falling off while we sang Christmas songs around the tree, our candles glowing throughout Silent Night. At the end of the ceremony, out mascot Dutch came in by reindeer and sleigh!
Later that night, SAC put on an 80’s Rollerskating event: Sk80s! It was held at the Home Roller Rink in Holland, and buses were provided to take students without cars over there! My friends and I didn’t really want to leave, that’s how fun skating around the entire time was! When it was over, we went to Steak ‘n Shake for shakes (obviously) and a late night snack.
The next morning was the Delight event. We walked to the Mouw Cottage, where worship is held every Saturday night, to spend some time with some other Hope girls, painting and worshipping while we enjoyed some delicious muffins and coffee. It was a very calming event, and I’m definitely going to be attending more Delight worships!
It was a very eventful weekend, balanced by friends, fun, and God.
