  • Essay

    The Living and Leading with Love (L3) Youth Theology Institute Steering Committee members are interested in learning more about you. Grades and scores tell us many things about your academic performance, but they tell us little about the questions that intrigue you or the way you think about them. Therefore, we would like you to write an essay in response to each of the four questions below. There are no right or wrong responses to these questions. The essay should be no longer than four pages, double spaced. Please type your essays and be sure to put your name on them.

    Question 1: What interests you most about the L3 program and why do you want to attend? (A) Share a story that exemplifies your faith journey (B) Identify theological/religious questions that are important to you.

    Question 2: What are you currently doing that you really care about, and why is it important to you? Who else is involved with you in this activity?

    Question 3: Describe yourself from the outside in—that is, tell us how others might describe you. Then tell what you consider to be important about yourself that others might miss (e.g., convictions, qualities, feelings, spiritual or religious experiences).

    Question 4: Identify someone you know or admire who has made a difference in this world. How, specifically, has this person influenced your life?
