On December 28th, students from colleges in South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina and West Virginia drove to Greensboro, NC and got to be part of Campus Crusade for Christ's 2007 Midsouth Winter Conference. We heard talks from Sinclair Ferguson (Fergalicious!), Roger Hershey, Mark Gauthier, and Lauren Winner (my personal favorite).
Something new at Encounter 07 was the "Worship Art Expression Room". Something I personally have been trying to understand and learn about is how to use my art as a type of worship. On Summer Project in New York last summer was the first time I actually was introduced to the idea of praying through artwork and since then, I've been wanting to figure out more about what that means.
In the Art Expression Room, students were invited to use the materials provided to make any type of art they felt led to make. Towards the end, all of the drawings and sculptures were moved into the "holding tank" as an "Encounter Exhibition" if you will, and here's what that looked like!
