Being new to a city can be intimidating. Everything I knew as familiar was no longer surrounding me. This fall I transferred into UBC to study business, and the first few weeks were overwhelming and exhausting. Simple tasks like buying groceries, figuring out transit for school, and finding classes added up to create stress. Moving out is a momentous change, and although it’s a worthwhile adventure, the transition is tough.
We’ve been dreaming for a little while about how we can make God Stories part of our everyday lives instead of just a Thursday Night Thing. So we decided to create this platform: the God Stories Blog. While we’re all studying for midterms, working, doing research, playing sports, joining clubs, and drinking too much coffee, (the list goes on and on), it’s sometimes easy to forget the reason we’re here and the big story that we’re in the middle of. This blog exists to remind one another of God’s big story and to encourage one another that God is working in our lives right here and right now.
