My name is Blake, and I’m at Rice University. Surviving at Rice requires a lot of concentration and work, and I’ve found that sometimes we need to stop and take a break for ourselves. That’s where HLCM comes in. Our short weekly Taize services and Friday book discussions provide a chance for us to slow down and get a new perspective on things. Most importantly for me, it provides an opportunity to grow my relationships, both with other people and with God.
