quick thought as school starts (#4)

Another speedy notion before (or as) your school year gets started…

Hold your plans loosely (especially plans for the second semester).

It’s easy for college ministers to get a schedule down and then stick with it, but a campus is too fluid a place – and a college ministry is too fluid a community – for us not to expect God to show us new opportunities often (certainly more than just each summer).

I could build this argument more – in fact, I have. But think about one thing: what changed, what you learned, and how your ministry grew/changed just in the spring semester. Fall generally introduces more change than spring, right? So why would your plans for next spring (or even October!) be absolutely set in stone?
