A WARM AND VIBRANT LIGHT Students Bring Trees to Life in New TOL Mural Hayley Bradfield Staff Writer

Students in Grace College’s Art Integrations course are entering the realm of commissioned art: painting a series of murals on the south side of Winona Lake’s Tree of Life Bookstore. Art Integrations was created this year to provide Grace’s art students hands-on experience within their field. Professor Cynthia Bryan has been guiding students through this Applied Learning process. Their project integrates the creative and the practical aspects of art. Students spent several weeks working with Tree of Life to compose the perfect images for the murals before the painting began. “My team alone went through over ten images for our mural.” says Alayna Robinson, a senior art major at Grace. All in all, there are six individual mu-

rals being painted, each with four or five students working on it. The murals are meant to impart Tree of Life’s mission and message to the community. “It will be a great accomplishment,” Robinson said with anticipation. “Once we’re all finished, we can step back knowing we did this together and that it is stunning!” It will be an accomplishment the whole class will find gratifying after the long process to finish it. After priming the outside wall of the bookstore, the class projected and traced their images onto the wall over several nights. With all of them traced as of last week, the students are finally getting to bring their drawings to life in color.

With two murals already completed, students eagerly await the unveiling of their work. An official opening will be scheduled after Fall Break -- provided good weather and steady supplies remain.

Standing Up Against Sex Trafficking Liz Palmer Staff Writer

Over the past year, the Grace College campus has become increasingly aware of the need to stand up against the global sex trafficking industry. Daily, underage girls and boys all over the world and throughout the United States are sold into prostitution against their will and forced to service sexual consumers. These children’s chances of escaping their fates are slim and often go unnoticed by the masses. The question is, what can we as a campus do about it? One student, junior Taylor Snavely, shares her story of where her passions for these girls originated and how she became involved in the organization Destiny Rescue, which helps these children escape a life that was not their choice. Four-and-a-half years ago, Snavely was able to go to a CIY conference in Illinois where she

connected with a group called Rapha House. At this time she watched a video called Baht, which described the horrors of the sex industry. The story of one girl in particular, Sophie, has affected and inspired Snavely ever since. “I understand and feel for their pain; I know that God has called me to help these kids.” This past summer, Snavely was able to intern for Destiny Rescue. “We traveled around a lot between Chicago and Cincinnati attending conferences. We set up informational booths about our cause and the importance of helping these children escape and transition into normal life. We also sold jewelry made by girls who were saved out of the sex industry, in order to raise money to go rescue more girls.” Overall, Snavely’s experience with Destiny Rescue helped advance her future calling, but she also knew that she wanted the chance to reach out to our campus to promote awareness and involvement.

“Destiny Rescue was more than willing to partner with the campus in hopes to form teams here who are willing to become further educated about sex trafficking and becoming a part of trafficking response units. We are giving them the means to understand what to look for when finding enslaved kids or potential cases of trafficking. The first meeting is Friday after chapel and we could use some help.” When asked for her most important message about the cause, Snavely said, “I do not want this to become a trendy thing or something people get involved in like a seasonal sport; I hope people will join this and take this seriously. Every 26 seconds, another child is trafficked. This group is not for the faint-hearted; it’s for those who are serious about helping.” For more information on Destiny Rescue and the fight against sex trafficking, visit www. destinyrescue.org/us/.

Students taking Introduction to Technology this fall do everything you’d expect for a typical introductory computer course: examine components like the CPU and motherboard, study programming languages, build their own personal computers and . . . compete in a Lego® robot tournament! Surprised? So was I. When I enrolled in Intro to Technology to begin the web design program, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Essentially, the course is designed to teach students how computers work, from its physical elements to its “thought process,” and how to program instructions for computers. This is where the Legos come in: one of the class’s main projects is building a robot out of Legos and programming it to complete certain challenges. Working in pairs, students assemble the robot’s basic structure from a modifiable kit. Next, they program their robot to drive, turn, bump and grab objects using computer software. Since early in the session, students have been trying--and re-trying--to make their fickle robots consistently complete their tasks. But all this effort comes down to the results of Monday, September 24th’s competition. Each team of two had four minutes to complete an obstacle course of challenges to earn points using the programs they created. The robots start in a base corner; when a program is running, the robot must move without any assistance from the students.

What Lego challenges face these brave robots and their programmers? In the middle of Philathea room 107 stands a simple children’s building table topped with ten “missions.” In “Astronaut’s Demise,” the robot must shove two Lego astronauts off a platform while avoiding the deadly “barrel of plutonium.” In “Bowling,” the robot bumps a Lego truck between two barriers to knock over twelve “pins” (bolts). Other missions include kicking a plastic soccer ball into a cardboard goal, shooting toy soldiers with a marble cannon and activating a crane made entirely of Legos to lift a truck. Many of these challenges are modeled after those Professor Rick Koontz, the course’s instructor, saw at a FIRST Lego League competition several years ago. After watching his son compete, Koontz integrated a version of the contest into ISM 110’s curriculum. Right about now you may be asking how playing with Legos is considered a college-level course, or perhaps you’re just looking forward to enrolling in Intro to Technology yourself. Regardless, be assured that this Lego competition is more than just goofing off. Koontz explains, “My goals for students are that they will become better self-learners, problem-solvers and communicators… the project also forces students to be persistent and keep trying.” So, while ISM 110’s Lego competition may seem a little goofy, it definitely has value. As students learn to program through having fun, hopefully they will realize just how enjoyable it can be.

Burkholder, Grace Students to Attend History Conference in Mass. Hillary Burgardt Staff Writer

October 3rd through the 6th, Grace Beasley, Nina Ferry, Rebecca Roberts, and I will be flying to Boston, Mass. to participate in the Conference on Faith and History at Gordon College. This conference gives history students the unique opportunity to present a paper to their peers and professionals in the field of history for peer review. Accompanying us will be Dr. Norris and Dr. Burkholder, who will serve as session chairs. Burkholder is also the Program Chair for the student portion of the conference. This conference is for both students and professionals and meets biannually, changing locations every time. “A number years ago [the Con-

ference on Faith and History] had an outreach towards undergraduate students, and so at that time they decided to start their biannual conference meetings one day early and do a one day undergraduate segment within the larger conference,” Burkholder said about this innovative method for drawing undergraduate history students into the professional world. When the conference first started in the 1960s, it was an opportunity for Christian historians to meet with peers who would respect them, since religious history was not widely esteemed in those days. It grew into a larger conference and was eventually recognized as an affiliate of the American Historical Association. As they grew, the members decided that they wanted to bring in the younger generations of historians. “I’d say within the last ten years, CFH has made a conscious effort to reach out

to students, which I think is one thing that kind of makes CFH unique,” said Burkholder. “One of the first ways that they tried to do this was to create a position on the executive board, the grad student representative.” In 2005, Burkholder was the first student to hold this position. The conference’s undergraduate outreach soon grew out of those initial efforts to reach out to aspiring historians. Today, we students who have the opportunity to go and present our work are thankful for and excited about this rare opportunity. “I am looking forward to the experience of interacting with other undergrad history students and also getting to meet and hear from some of the best Christian historians in the country,” said Ferry. “I look forward to gaining insight and wisdom from historians on the intersection of the profession of the historian and the Christian faith.”

As we have ventured through our years here at Grace, we’ve encountered our fair share of those dreaded creatures -you guessed it -- professors. These professors are intent on our destruction, as they are with any student, but we have always come out victorious. Well, nearly always. I mean, come on, one of them is called the Assassin. We were walking dead the moment we stepped in the classroom. (No, no zombies were involved. Is watching TV all you do?) Thus, we have realized THAT the key to enduring the onslaught of long classes and busywork from professors is summed up in this statement: “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” So, what exactly do we mean by “struggle”? Struggle, of course, means conflict.

Practically, then, any time you create conflict in the classroom, you are initiating struggle, which means progress is being made. What then is this “progress”? We know your elementary teachers and politically astute friends have probably told you it is simply the opposite of “Congress,” but we know there’s another definition. In this context, progress means learning. Since we have established that conflict fosters learning, we must now inform you as to how to go about starting said conflict. First, arrive to class at least five minutes late. Be sure to come in after the attendance sheet has passed your seat. This forces the professor to backtrack and allows your fellow classmates to hear the content again so they can get caught up on their notes. They can pay you for your

trouble later. Second, raise your hand often to ask questions that barely have anything to do with the content of the lecture. Be sure that there is at least some connection so it is more difficult for the professor to disregard. This will allow for a broader expanse of knowledge to be shared, whereas the professor’s original intent was to give you only a limited amount. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, disagree with the professor on even the most trivial of points. You must show everyone in the room, even the professor, that there’s significance in the details. You are like Sherlock Holmes in this way. Plus, doing this will ensure that the professor doesn’t go over everyone’s head with the material. Fourthly, cell phones are your best friends. Use them frequently and noticeably in class.

Most professors have a-no-cell-phone policy and will stop class to enforce it. By doing this, you cause the professor to be just as engaged in the classroom as he expects you and your classmates to be. Cell phones also help create struggle outside the classroom. Calling a professor in the wee hours of the night and/ or morning with more trivial questions that you’ve had the entire evening to mull over and perfect reminds him that you can never stop learning, so he must never stop teaching. It also enables him to know what topics to prepare for the next class session. You are now completely prepared to engage in the most efficient form of education, taking part in the progressive struggle of learning. If you follow the steps we just gave you, you’ll be well on your way to graduating in three years. Or fewer. Reimagine that.

“Always a Surprise” Katie VanSloten RA of Grace Village

Since moving into the Village, my adventuring has greatly increased. I now have the input of experienced adventurers. You would be surprised how incredible the ideas of an 80-year-old can be. I’ve heard suggestions to catch snakes off the roof, hide behind the doorway to scare people and throwing toilet paper at cars on the road. I may not follow through with all these ideas, but I sure am excited to take Bobby on our next ad-

venture night. A few weeks ago, I was walking down the hallway and overheard an intense argument. I walked slowly around the corner (not wanting to interrupt), and saw an older woman yelling at the maintenance man about the Venetian lace on the counter. Apparently, he wanted to replace it and she was not a fan of this suggestion. While occasionally hesitant toward change, the folks over here are very resourceful and

good at saving things. I was over in assisted living and the women were washing their plastic plates and forks. The other week, I was given a poster of dogs that a lady had kept for over fifteen years! The give and take table is an awesome place to get old treasures. My roommate can attest to that, considering our room is now loaded with “new” items. Life in the Village is full of such precious surprises

On the Heart 1 Corinthians 2:16 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” How do we deal with our pain? With the bad things that happen to us and others? We often question God, don’t we? We want to understand. We want answers. We want to tell God it shouldn’t have happened. In a sense, we pretend to know what is good for us, what we should have and what should happen to us. But how do we, as finite and sinful beings presume to tell a righteous, sovereign and infinite God what He should and shouldn’t do? We are not promised an easy life, but we are asked to place our trust in God.

“God is Good”

Not everything in life is going to make sense because we can’t see the big picture like God can. That does not give us the right to question whether or not God knows what He is doing. We know that God can handle our questions and emotions; look at the Psalms. However, there is a difference between asking God why as we express our anger and hurt and questioning His goodness and His decisions. We can ask God what His plan is without questioning that He has done what is best in his infinite wisdom. When the pain becomes real, as it often does, God wants us to turn to Him and trust Him. Pour your heart out to Him, but don’t pretend you have the power to instruct God. Above all, never doubt that God is good through it all.

Lancers Set Their Sights on the Conference Jordan Butler Sports Writer

Grace College, you can look forward to a fantastic season from our men’s tennis team. Leading the way this year are experienced seniors Michael Blevins, Nikola Todorovic, and Josh Beguin. Head Coach Larry Schuh anticipates a productive year from his guys. “When you say next level, I think of conference,” he said. With that goal in mind, he aims for improvement at every level this year, saying, “Everyone is healthy,;we just need to make sure we are firing on all cylinders.” Schuh’s confidence is not limited to his returning players; he also spoke very highly of the freshmen, noting their “great potential.” Schuh explained that, “they weren’t able to crack the lineup this year...Ricardo, Ethan, and Josiah...will help out next year and even more so in the years to come.” Schuh also praised his three doubles teams, characterizing them as “very solid.” He maintains that “Our top four guys are quality tennis players and could play for some D-1 schools around here and everyone in conference knows

who they are by name, and they know that they need to play their best to beat them.” Asked about his expectations for this year, Schuh answered confidently, “We fully expect to win conference, we really do.” As for the team’s spiritual goals, senior Michael Blevins asserts this year’s men’s tennis team is striving to “honor God with our play and our attitudes on and off the court.” The team consensus is that their toughest competition will come from Spring Arbor, IWU, Taylor, Bethel, and Goshen. Those five schools always seem to be Grace’s toughest opponents in almost every sport in Grace Athletics. Looking back on his Grace College career, Blevins said, “I wouldn’t say I’m satisfied yet, I’ll be satisfied when the season is over.” His brother Aaron is coming off foot surgery last spring and stated “I’m as close to 100% as I am going to get. I look forward to coming back even stronger and hope to have a great season.” 2011-2012 standout junior Jack Wang said that he aims to “work on improving every area of my game so I can be a solid all-around tennis player.” Be sure you head over to Miller Field this season and see our men’s tennis team in action!

PLAYER OF THE WEEK Trey Stoll, Golf

Trey is this week’s Player of the Week with his performance in the Holy Cross Invitational on Tuesday. After posting a first round score of 75, Trey found himself three strokes behind the leader after the first day. In the second day of competition, Stoll fired an even-par 70 to win the tournament by two strokes. Trey has won both tournaments this year after being behind after the first day. He looks to continue his success on September 24-25 at the Bethel Invitational.

Goshen-- After winning by two points in their previous match, the Lady Lancers thrashed Goshen in impressive fashion with a 5-0 victory. In singles competition, Kristin Cassidy pulled out a gritty three set match (3-6, 6-4, 6-2) and Nicole Beguin won her match handily (6-1, 6-4). Taryn Wuensch (6-1), Janelle Hess (6-4), Sarah Hinkel (61), and Esther Smith (6-0) rounded out the scoring for the Lady Lancers in singles competition. They closed out the match with three strong performances by their doubles teams of Cassidy/Wuensch (8-6), Beguin/ Hess (8-2), and Hinkel/Smith (8-5). The Lady Lancers (1-5, 1-5 CL) look to continue their success against Huntington University on Tuesday.

Grace women’s tennis defeats Goshen for first win of season

Lancers take home two victories Winona Lake-- Facing a strong Indiana Tech team (4-3) on Tuesday, Grace men’s soccer gutted out an impressive win 2-1 in overtime agains the Warriors. An assist by Steven Fiema resulted in a goal off of the head of Ben Cahill in the 30th minute of play. The Lancers held their ground for the next 43 minutes of play until a handball in the penalty box resulted in a goal for the Warriors to tie the game at 1 apiece. Less than four minutes into overtime play, Austin Altimus fed the ball to Gift Sibukome who rocketed in the game winner. In the first game of the Crossroads League season, Grace matched up against Huntington University (5-3-2, 0-1 CL) on Saturday. This match was physical, with 35 fouls and six yellow cards, four of which were the Foresters’. Grace opened the scoring with an Altimus cross which resulted in a Kyle Hamlin goal. That proved to be enough as Grace held on 1-0 against a strong team. The Lancers (6-2, 1-0 CL) will next face off at Indiana Wesleyan on Wednesday.

Grace men’s tennis impresses with two victories Winona Lake-- The Lancers, in the first match of the week on Tuesday, rolled through their match against Bethel College (1-7, 1-4 CL) by only dropping 13 total points in a 9-0 sweep of the Pilots.

Face-Off: Which NFL Team Will Win Super Bowl XLVII? After years of futility, the Redskins finally have a team with a very good shot at winning the Super Bowl this year. Head Coach Mike Shanahan has put together a team that can win every week. Two greats drafts over the past two years have given Redskins fans hope for this year and beyond. Playing in the NFC East, arguably the toughest division in the NFL, provides a very tough and gritty schedule, which can prepare a team for a Super Bowl run. Take the Giants, for instance, who have won two of the past five Super Bowls. The Redskins will have to face the 2011 Super Bowl Champion Giants twice this year, along with two games each against the Eagles and Cowboys. The division schedule by itself is one of the hardest schedules any team in the NFL has to play. The Redskins also have matchups against the Falcons, the Steelers, and the Ravens, three of the toughest defenses in the league. This schedule is going to be difficult but it can definitely prepare a team for a Super Bowl run. The relative youth of several starters

could hurt the Redskins. Washington will start a rookie quarterback in Robert Griffin III, a rookie running back in Alfred Morris, and a rookie wide receiver in Aldrick Robinson. All three, though, are coming off stellar college careers, and Griffin joins the team as the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner. Additionally, though the Redskins are very young, they do have two very good veterans on their team, wide receiver Santana Moss on offense and linebacker London Fletcher on defense, both of whom have over 10 years of experience. The Redskins’ offense is already off to an impressive start this season, currently ranked 11th in the NFL in passing and 4th in running. This team scores points. Their defense, however, is another story, as their passing defense is dead last and their running defense is 10th. The Redskins will have to use their prolific offense to outscore their opponents as their defense will not do them any favors.

It might seem crazy to pick a team with a mediocre defense, but with their tough schedule, impressive rookies and veteran offense. the Redskins have a great chance to win the Super Bowl this year.

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. I am not getting fooled by the 49ers again. I may have missed last year’s Super Bowl pick. So what am I doing? Picking them again. Why? Let us see . . . what are the weaknesses for this year’s 49ers team? It is not the schedule. For starters, they get to play the Rams and Cardinals twice a year. Both teams are improved from last year, but are more pesky than competitive. New York, New England and Seattle are the only teams the 49ers face that are not blips on the schedule. But really, can a rookie-led team immediately compete against an elite defense for the division title? With

the Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants all fielding solid teams, the NFC looked loaded. Then the 49ers embarrassed two would-be contenders in Green Bay and Detroit and reminded everyone how good they still were. I am not saying the 49ers will go undefeated, but they should clinch home field advantage in the playoffs. It certainly is not the defense. In their first three games, the 49rs defense has created four turnovers. Last season, the team led the NFL in turnover differential at an astounding plus-28. In Bill Barnwell’s “The Inaugural NFL Trade Value Rankings” on Grantland, he listed four 49ers in his top 45 (NaVorro Bowman, Patrick Willis, Aldon Smith, and Justin Smith), all of whom are linebackers or linemen. But it is not just their front seven that is intimidating. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers were a combined 4 of 12 (33.3 percent) passing with 93 yards and an interception when throwing more than ten yards downfield against the

49ers’ split-safety defense. Simply put, the 49ers have a virtually immovable defense. So what could go wrong? Alex Smith is scary even to most 49ers fans. But despite the ire of all the hometown Indianapolis Colts fans, maybe the 49ers lucked out in not getting Manning. If (read: when) Frank Gore gets hurt, more responsibility will be put on Alex Smith. Yet so far, Alex Smith is tied for third in the NFL in QBR. Granted, if he starts to throw interceptions, anything goes. But I am not buying the regression that analysts predict for Smith. Maybe he had a fluky 2011 season, but maybe Jim Harbaugh is just really good with quarterbacks. This 49ers team looks every bit as good this season as they did last year. Led by their mastermind coach in a wide-open NFC race, the 49ers hope to ride their defense all the way to the Super Bowl. After being teased with the opportunity last postseason, I think it is about time we had an all-Harbaugh Super Bowl. by Zane Gard Sports Writer
