I deeply hope this class will also help me to prepare for contributing to civil society. I would like to either be able to try and bring people to Christ or just make the world a better place somehow and show God through my actions. Either way, I want to be able to connect society together as a whole through Jesus Christ and I do believe this class and other classes like this at Indiana Wesleyan will be starting points for my aspirations and goals. One of the only main concerns I have is that growing up in a bubble and going to college in this Christian bubble might affect me and how I achieve these goals once I get out there into the real world. I am sure though that God will find a way to use me to further his kingdom.
