Larry and I have the same writing class and completed the same assignment:
Genesis 2:19 says "Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name." Writing is all about seeing, and I want to see. It even seems that God wants to see what I see. God brought all the animals to Adam, for this first task, to see what he would name them. In order for God to act this way, He must have known that something holy and creative lay dormant inside of Adam. Today, that same something is inside of me, and through writing, the world will see it. I want to be a writer so that the world can see what I see. Imagine a person ending a joke with "you had to be there." Jokes like this receive no laughter or credit, and the world is responding the same way towards the message of Christ. My writing is going to guide people through places they could have never gone, and will help them feel that they "were just there" and that it's possible to understand the joke. If the world saw what I saw, they would see a kingdom of Light, a Kingdom of Darkness, the joy of walking and the thrill of eating. The world is beautiful and I want to restore reverence to the profaned. As an evangelism major, my studies center on helping people to see the world as I see it. As a Christian, my focus is to see the world as God sees it. He has written eternity on my heart, and my writings are attempts to do the same for people living without the Savior. I want to be a writer so I can connect the world with The Kingdom.
