One of my biggest idols is being in control. Growing up, being in control came along with working hard. If I worked hard, I could be in control of my exams, my college applications, my relationships, and more.

I would tell myself that this was what it meant to be “working faithfully”. After all, I was working as hard as I could.
Dr. Vincent Bacote’s November lecture on reconciliation had many powerful, applicable aspects on a variety of issues. One of his main points that he hammered over and over again was that we ought recognize essential parts of a human’s identity, and value that identity. I think that’s an incredibly powerful statement, one that Princeton needs to hear, and one that rings consistently with Scripture. I humbly disagreed, however, with one of his main applications: that we ought to care about race. In a nutshell, the aspects of humanity that we ought care about for identity purposes tie back to the concept of the image of God, and race is not part of that.
