GAPrayer Fridays

GAP, News

By Beth A It’s true I’m a peace forfeiter. It’s hard to admit but it’s true. Not only that, but every day I try to shoulder the weight of all my cares, I stumble upon my own arrogance as I try to tackle each day on my own. Instead of asking the Creator of the Universe for advice I ask …

Farewell Post: Liz

GAP

[Liz has been a faithful GAPer ever since arriving in Blacksburg in 2010. Liz had a hand in planning just about every GAP event, whether you knew it or not.

GAPnotes: Totally Like Whatever

GAP

By Viktor Oh politics. I’m so looking forward to this political season being over on Nov. 6. Don’t get me wrong, I love following politics, but the first primary debate was way back on May 5, 2011 (really), so I’m ready for this round to be over. That being said, there’s one thing about the political season that I really …
