Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

Dominican Republic – Day 1

Hello! This is Gavin Roe. Yesterday at LAX we had a long time waiting for our flight to come and pick us up to go to Miami. It was a long and exhausting flight, and nobody got any sleep. Finally, after 6 hours of flying, we made it to our destination! Excited to go to the foundation tomorrow… But now, it’s time to sleep!

Hey buds, it’s Ashton! Yesterday was such a long and tiresome day. We left at 1 am and got to Miami at around 9:30am and rushed to our other terminal for a 10:10 departure. I was sitting next to someone who got me sick and that stunk, but I’m feeling better now! We got to our hotel at 2 PM and got our rooms at 4:45. Everyone was just so tired that we hung out and ate, then had our meeting. Now, I think everyone is so tired they just want to sleep badly! It was a great day. I can’t wait for more!

Thanks to everyone who prayed for our travels and safety! We’re glad to be here and from what we’ve seen, this place is beautiful! Prayers for tomorrow as we go to the foundation would be appreciated!

Imago Dei is the Latin sentiment for the “Image of God.” The idea that mankind has been made in the image and likeness of God is rooted in Old and New Testament teachings. This position proclaims that humankind possesses certain qualities, characteristics, or endowments that mirror His nature and character. Considered the “crown of creation”, people are fundamentally different than all other creation, clearly existing for a higher purpose. Many would insist that humans are most like God when it comes to their unique relational qualities, meaning it is man’s ability to engage in complex interpersonal relationships that best reflects the divine. • Yet, our human nature tends to assign negative meaning to circumstances and/or things we do not understand. Unfamiliar cultures, different customs, or unexplained actions are filtered through this bias where our self-centered point of view is presumed correct and superior, leading us to assume the worst of others. • Re-claiming the Imago Dei resets our default position to a more gracious, understanding posture. So “beautifully and wonderfully made” leaves no room for groundless contempt toward others. To the contrary, if Imago Dei was accurately perceived we would be awe-struck, tempted to worship. Therefore, being formed in the image of Christ we are empowered to live deeply in community and ultimately enabled to fulfill the two greatest commandments…love God with all your heart, soul and mind; and love your neighbor as yourself. #loveyourneighborasyourself #imagodei #asinheaven #georgefloyd
