On the Edge
Making plans for another ‘season’ of ARE I can't help but hope that the programs we offer will inform, heal, motivate, and stretch participants. If I'm going to be honest, I also want very much for those unfamiliar with UUCOV to find something in our programs that brings them to our campus.
At the July Lunch and Learn an option in our Risky Business questions sheet began with, "Have you fallen into more "vanilla pudding" than you thought you would?". "Lose the edge and you're dribbling along in the uncooked vanilla pudding of life"- Lisa Martinovic
Beware the following thoughts that might keep you in the "pudding"
• The subject is uninteresting, boring
• I don't agree with the message
• It's a difficult subject
• I don't like the emotion laden words associated with the program
• We covered that topic years ago
As our programming really ramps up, beginning in October, I invite you to stay out of the pudding and reach for the edge: challenge yourself, choose something different, invite a friend, listen reverently, and share openly.
