We started the afternoon with songs, engaging message, and special song and touching sharing from the students. At the end, we put our tags on this display, showing how all our stories fit into God’s story.
While the turkey and food is being setup, there was a time of games while people waited.
Look at all these delicious turkeys, 28 in all. Some group had different recipes. I heard the deep fried turkey is the most tender. It’s impossible to eat a portion from each turkey. Still we all had our fill from the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, candied yam, … Too much good food to list.
Each group put on song and performances. IUSM put on a performance from the movie Inside Out! Brian sure look familiar. Did they used his picture for Anger in the movie? Are you sure they only had practice for one day? There are some natural talents for these roles.
Even some dancing as part of the performance by our IUSM members.
Which 3 characters are they playing here? Disgust, Joy, Sadness. Can you guess which one is which? If you are still not sure, you can ask them the next time you see them.
Our Alumni, Dr. Ng(he wants everyone to call him Kit) received his PhD from Davis Chemistry Department. We asked him to come and talk about this topic, and he came back … home … to lend a hand.
At the beginning, while everyone is settling down. Here we look our views of God: vending machine, good vs bad deeds, aloof, relationship? Put a marble in the jar in front of the picture…
Dr. Ng talked about 3 different ways how we form our worldviews of daily experiences. And how those 3 ways can help us come to form our view of God we can relate to… There was some good discussion around the table. Then there was the good desserts.
We ended the night with game of Blind Turkey. One person draw one part of the turkey, and people in each team take turn until they draw the whole turkey. We have some good artistic talents, and some turkey picture(s) looks so good and proportional…
We had pumpkin carving activity in 3 different homes. We all had fun, starting with a hearty dinner. Then we put our creativity to work, and then had good desserts. We all left with memorable memories from the night.
What: Does God Exist? Reasons For God When: Friday, November 20, 2015, 7pm Where: Student Community Center MPR
IUSM will explore and talk about: is there a god beyond our understanding? What would such a god be like? Is there really a god out there, and are there any clues such a god would leave behind for us to look for those clues?
Well we hope you can come and join us this Friday as we talk about this topic.
Let’s try something new. How about some miniature golf? Sure, let’s go…
There are sure a lot of colorful lights on the miniature golf course. The smaller size course can make anyone be a pro golfer. Come and try yourself!
The food sure is good with some hot soup(Pho). The soup is hot enough to cook even the veggies and the beef. Everyone totally enjoy the dish in front of them. It a complete course meal with noodle, meat, vegetables. Bon appetit!
IUSM Special Talk: Science and Faith || Friday, 10/23/2015 @ 7:00 pm || SCC MPR
Come join us at the Student Community Center MPR for free dinner, or engaging talk, or awesome games afterwards. All these starts on this Friday, 10/23/15, 7:00pm
We had a great time with Studying the Bible. After that, it’s time to try out some new events. Eric, what should we do? “Hmm, not sure…”
Jin, “let me tell you what we have in store for tonight!”…
What is this, ping pong? You can’t fool me, this is not the way to play ping pong. The Din style ping pong sure looks fun. Everyone enjoyed it!
Where were you? Come join the fun!
There were more?…
That’s all the new games right? Wait, what are those balloons for? Trying to stump and breaking it with your foot? Eric, watch out for your own balloon（螳螂捕蝉，黄雀在后)! Next playing marbles with spoons? That is interesting. Even rolling quarters on the floor in a game of puck on table. There were sure a good variety of games.
Let’s all take a break, and enjoy some of these delicious desserts for the night!
While some of our friends join the battle on the waters to the east of Davis, we went for some adventure on the west of Davis. We went to the Corn Maze in Dixon. This corn maze set the world record in the 2014 Guinness Book World Record. It sure is large. Don’t get lost, just look at the map. Look at that big map in the picture. Before we start, let’s map the course and don’t get lost. Who’s good with directions here?
While we wait to get the tickets, let’s explore the front entrance area, and picture time.
Let the adventure begin… enter the maze.
Let’s take a break to enjoy the beauty of the sunset. We are not lost right? Because from the top of the platform, we saw different dead end from the carved out paths. We sure don’t want to end up in there.
Anyone brought a flashlight? Whew, glad that we didn’t get lost. We got out before the sun went down.
All these walking sure make us hungry. The food sure look yummy.
