A Yale Alumna Shares

stephanie and chitra"Growing up, I imagined Christianity was about being right, and I sought to understand God intellectually. It was only in college that God became real, as I was nearly 10,000 miles away from home and constantly challenged about my faith. I had to figure out what I actually believed. 

Christian Union’s ministry at Yale was a safe refuge to bring my questions and doubts.
