Charli Bultmann's Reflection
It is difficult for me to pinpoint a specific moment in which I have found God, especially during this past year at Rockhurst. This year has been more of a journey on the path of creating a beautiful relationship with God for me. I have seen God while walking to classes when I see the sun shining so brightly and the sky hovering above me in its rich blue color. I have especially become aware of God lately in the budding of new life in the trees and flowers all over campus. But God is not only present in these things; this year, more than ever, I have seen God in the people in my life. My family, close friends, and even acquaintances have been compassionate and thoughtful in ways I never realized before. It is every person around me that makes me see God. He is in all of us in one way or another. I believe that it is our experiences with others that truly help us to find God. These experiences unite us not only as a Rockhurst community but also as a community of God.
