What I say about BJU was true at the time I was there, or true from my perspective. I hear there are big changes going on, like, no hose all the time, or unchaperoned dating, or students allowed on facebook. These are all clearly heretical to the way I experienced BJ. I'm pretty appalled,when I decide to expend emotion on it, and angry, too, about the angst and drama I went through with things that would be changed 10 or 15 years later. Because it was a stupid rule to begin with (I was going to launch into some exegesis of cultural ideas/tradition vs. Scriptural standards but I'll settle for a dismissive cliche).
Since I started this post, I heard that students don't have to attend all 4 daily Bible Conference meetings. This is a week of no classes and all services; other schools have Spring Break, BJ has Bible Conference. It was the only time of year that we could go on the grass and it was a big thing to have a picnic on the grass. I had one my whole 4 years there, I think. It was kind of a couple thing, to have picnics on the grass, and I was never in a couple at the right time. Oh, there was anther one; Christa and I planned one but we had it inside the gym lobby because of cold wind, or something.
Weird. Weird the things I remember, weird the things I did. Can't wait to hear more, can you?
