Lands A Circle in the Sand Posted by Jillian Hedges 17 I remember what it was like sitting in that classroom on Wheaton College s campus in May with the 43 unfamiliar faces I d be spending six weeks abroad with Six weeks traveling across Israel Greece Turkey and Italy The air of mixed excitement and uncertainty was prominent as Dr Chris Vlachos stood at the front of the room giving a pre trip lecture on the climactic moment of Jesus ministry when He looked upon His disciples and asked But who do you say that I am Then the waves were crashing along the shoreline at Caesarea Philippi The air was warm and the sun bright We sat upon the rocks and the passage was read once more The 43 faces around me were more familiar now somehow the late hours together and sweat from a blazing Israeli sun cultivated a kind of friendship that couldn t be bought And being there with them the question seemed to ring louder as if it were being asked not of the disciples but of us In a world that denies twists and confuses His identity Who do you say that I am It was not asked of a single person but to the whole of the group an open question in need of response I imagine them looking around at one another letting the words hang uncertainly in the air Perhaps the answer was what all of them were thinking Perhaps it had not yet occurred to some of them But it was Simon Peter who stepped forward with the bold reply You are the Christ the Son of the living God It was the last event of our last day the Scavi tour underneath St Peter s Basilica in Rome Those 43 were no longer simply faces but beautiful souls with whom I d experienced the journey of a lifetime We went below 12 at a time to a small room containing an even smaller box that held the purple stained bones of an elderly man who died in the first century the bones more likely than not of Peter the first person to openly declare Jesus as the Christ The passage from Matthew 16 was read once more closing the six week long circle Wheaton to Israel to Rome the lingering question remains In our speech in our actions in our lives Who do you say that I am Jillian Hedges 17 is a Communication Media Studies major who traveled abroad

Spiritual Life The Liberal Arts Youth Hostel Ministry My Passion for Global Cities Posted by Ann Szeliga 17 Choosing to participate in Youth Hostel Ministry or YHM has proven to be a wise decision for many more reasons than I expected YHM appeared to be a program that would allow me to travel practice my Spanish and get outside of my comfort zone with my fellow travelers in Europe Though those things have all proven to be true the crux of my learning has been within my heart toward how I view the world and what God wants to do with me for His Kingdom Traveling through Paris was a time of frustration for me as my team struggled to meet other travelers in our hostel This resulted in discouragement for our team I was joyful to be in a large city but there was something about Paris that shook me the wrong way The city lacked spirituality I saw a dark place bustling with Parisians and tourists interacting in a mundane empty way Seeing Notre Dame felt like a tourist destination rather than a beautiful cathedral sharing the beauty and love of our God Parisians of all classes riding the metro with distressed sad looks on their faces allowed me to see the desperate need for the Gospel in this city This darkness is not unique to Paris though many cities around Europe and the world are craving hope and truth in their lives My journey I ve learned begins with studying the development and problems of cities I hope this equips me with a deeper understanding of such cities transforming my discouragement into deliverance of His love In Barcelona our team saw an example of a lack of respect for human dignity My team and I were in a restaurant in Barcelona when I witnessed deep cruel racism involving Spaniard patrons and some Asian employees After our team chatted with the employees we learned they chose not to kick the unruly men out because then they would not earn enough money for the day This is what they deal with on a daily basis in order to make a living in a place they should be

    declares a character in Brecht s The Caucasian Chalk Circle Arena Theater s production of Brecht s play emphasizes the playwright s quest for peace and justice in the face of war Brecht is known for his usually heavy plays and he was a pioneer of modern theater advocating for art which encouraged social change and action He does not try to entertain but to provoke thought He weaves humor over his weighty topics yet is not afraid to momentarily show the audience the darkness he dances around The Caucasian Chalk Circle perfectly captures the ambiguity of a war zone the audience is faced with both the menace and grandeur of battle the invasion and desperate plight of the insignificant Even the resolution of the play is overshadowed by unanswered questions does war further justice Does justice further peace As an actor these ambiguities are a space for work The Caucasian Chalk Circle calls for over 70 characters and Arena Theater s current production is populated by only 18 actors We are all playing many roles attacking problems from several points of view Many of these characters are terrible people selfish deceitful filthy It is the actor s job to humanize them and I find myself asking How is this person better than I I am forced to be patient generous and even merciful with these characters as I simultaneously use them to tell a story while also authentically advocating for them in their own risky worlds Perhaps it is this mercy which can further peace in the world as we reach out to the least of these Brecht keeps his story moving through song and Arena s production pairs the confrontational driving energy of hip hop music with the playwright s need to be heard Beats and textures dominate the soundscape as characters and musicians fall in and out of rhythm with Brecht s songs and dialogue Working with composer Elliot Leung 17 and director Michael Stauffer we fit words to music to stage in a daunting feat of multi media manipulation We decided to end the play with a prayer I adapted the tune of this Dona Nobis Pacem from the end of Shostakovich s Symphony No 8 composed shortly after WWII The tempestuous symphony plots the end of a turbulent war and concludes in a major key but deep rumblings of twisted musical phrases continue beneath the tranquility The peace is not so peaceful after all To reference Isaiah though we cry for peace There is none Perhaps as Christians we are the peacemakers of the world Brecht certainly begs us to be Max Pointner 18 is a sophomore art history major and part of Arena Theatre To learn more about Wheaton

Communion Chaplain Blackmon asked the student body to take out our phones and tweet our prayer for Wheaton College Without hesitation I typed with my millennial paced thumbs that our campus would take itself less seriously This prayer for Wheaton has also motivated my involvement in College Union during my junior and senior years at Wheaton College Union is an organization composed of 12 students who coordinate some of Wheaton s most beloved events President s Ball Talent Show Roller Disco Air Jam Class Films and dozens more But College Union is about so much more than simply drawing large crowds of people We believe that behind the strange costumes loud music and goofy events lie our mission and purpose because Wheaton students myself included have a tendency to take ourselves too seriously On College Union we believe that our events matter to the vitality of our campus because they remind our accomplishment and excellence saturated culture that there is more to us as people than what we do or what we accomplish A good GPA which I may or may not possess or a robust résumé of which I may or may not boast are fine but they can never take the place of laughter goofiness or letting loose that is necessary for human flourishing As the song goes a little party never killed nobody This mission to offer events that energize our student body keeps the College Union team motivated to continue to provide some of the staple events that our campus community looks forward to every year But this doesn t exhaust College Union s mission this year s team is always looking for new and fresh ways to invigorate our campus Already this year we have introduced a mechanical bull at our annual square dance and used the French House as a massive canvas for community art pieces Who knows what this year s College Union team will dream up next And hopefully event by event our campus will be encouraged to play goof around and ultimately take ourselves less seriously Tyler Hansen 16
