I first attended Athens PBJ the spring of my junior year. It was simply a meeting I had to attend so I could get service credit for my fraternity. The meeting was strange and awkward. Highly touted as an incredible opportunity by the officers of my fraternity, Athens PBJ was nothing more than a small gathering outside The Grill. There the homeless shared generally fragmented and incoherent...
To the Raleigh fellows….
To most Americans, the idea of peace signifies a absence – an absence of stress, absence of either required or tedious work, absence of doubt, etc. Peace to us is emptiness, a lack. When our lives hasten and the sweat begins to glisten on our brows, we dream of an escape; we dream of “absenting” ourselves from whatever it is that presses in on us like a trash compactor.

For me, this question is a lot easier thanks to a friend who taught me the blessing of journaling my thoughts/dreams/experiences/prayers….really everything. My story...

Making a résumé is a difficult task.
Trying to fit one’s marketable tasks onto one page is difficult. If you are a college student with little work experience who faces looming unemployment in less than six months, and lives in the worst economy since the Great Depression, “difficult” does not even begin to capture the job-search challenge; the task would be better labeled as arduous.

What's in a Fellow?
That’s a good question! For starters, my name is Anna Day and I graduated this past December from the University of Georgia. I am one of the five Classic City Fellows. This blog will follow our year of learning and living life together as we pursue our calling to live faithfully in the Church and in the world. So what have I learned so far? · It’s really all about relationships. Get to know...
