The 6th Annual Montreat Creative Writing Festival

Jumping Through Hoops

Intramural basketball is a timeless tradition at Montreat College. It has been going on for over six years and will continue to be one of Montreat’s most riveting events upon the arrival of each new season.   There was much talent to be found this year.

“Whatever is Wise: Proverbs for Young Adults”

I wrote the book from a heart for seeing young people discipled in the things of God. Having led a number of young adults through a study in the book of Proverbs and having even preached a series through this collection from the wisdom literature in the English-speaking ministry services of a Korean Presbyterian church, […]

Coming Home

All journeys begin and end somewhere; however, the part in-between the two is usually the most interesting. I currently find myself in the in-between, constantly being surprised by the twists and turns that I encounter. One of the most recent twists in my life story led me to none other than Montreat College, the community […]

Dear Dr. King

A favorite memory of mine–among many with Dr. King–was his annual Christmas party, my sophomore year at Montreat. We were doing the normal things English majors do at any Christmas party: namely debating and discussing our favorite literature and playing “Guess the Famous Author” over a delicious spread of cheesecake, ice cream, and coffee. It […]

New Assumptions

A large number of churches in America have lost their way in worship.  This is due to a regrettable level of biblical and theological ignorance concerning the history and patterns of Christian worship practices.  We are without excuse regarding this lack of knowledge and it has resulted in obliviousness.  The history of our worship is […]

Past Watchful Dragons

The initial shock of the sharp, repetitive pounding of needles into my skin was more than I expected. The tattoo artist, sleeved from wrist to shoulder in his own art, was no stranger to first-timers, and quickly fell into a comfortable rhythm of joking and intense concentration. It was the night of my 21st birthday; […]
