Abide is an unscheduled prayer experience for college students, high school seniors and adults who work with college students. Abide is designed to be a time of retreat. There is a opening session on Friday night and a closing session Saturday afternoon. Everything in between is up to you. There will be various "Abide Encounters" to help you pray and connect with God. Sit by the water. Spend some time next to the bonfire. Sleep. Listen to the quiet. Pray for your campus and the world. Enjoy the cool weather. Take a walk by yourself. Have coffee with a friend.

Last year many got stuck in Austin traffic. Below are some avoid-Austin-traffic directions written by someone who lives in Austin. Also, you might want to leave a little earlier than it suggests just in case.

From DFW / East Texas: (to avoid Austin Traffic)
  1. Take I35 south to Belton, Texas
  2. At Belton, take 190 west to Lampasas (This is approximately 20 miles further but will avoid the logjam of Austin traffic on Friday evening and save an hour or more
