What are we doing gathered here at Steubenville? For what are we searching? What do we think will make us happy? Pete Burds’ keynote on Friday evening asked us to consider what our thirst is really for.
Thirst: For What Do We Long?
We all have basic desires for food, drink, and sleep. These are good to pay attention to and to satisfy.
We also have another level of desire. We desire popularity and thirst for the desire to be known and to be a big deal. We all desire relationships, not just romantic relationships, but for a good family and friendships. Maybe you desire money or to get into a good college?
Even if we can attain these desires, we remain unsatisfied.
