Dear CU Gloria Law Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

When Harvard was first founded in 1636, one of its central bylaws was written as follows:

"Let every student be earnestly pressed to consider well that the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ who is eternal life--and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning."

In 1993, when evangelist Billy Graham asked Harvard’s president, Derek Bok, what the greatest struggle his students dealt with at the college, Bok quickly responded, “Living with emptiness.”

Much has changed at Harvard since its founding days until now, but much has remained the same. And the unique urgency of the body of Christ to be more present in the greater student community is at a crescendo, as we are challenged to show love amid hate, peace in a time of turmoil, and to speak truth in love. One of the things that I have been so impressed with regarding our CU community at HLS is their wisdom and ability to minister to their fellow students with such a pastoral heart—praying with students at a campus kindness table—and their relational approach towards evangelism. We spoke this past semester of this dynamic when speaking of evangelism: "God works to develop goodwill, which will hopefully lead us to share the good news!”

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
(Ephesians 2:10)

Laying down a foundation of good works built upon the truth of Christ being the firm foundation in everything that we do and who we are will ultimately lead to good relationships with our community. We share the gospel of Jesus Christ, who replaces the emptiness of the world and its promises with the fullness of God’s love and mercy, which promises eternal life through Christ, through faith.

This is the foundation that our CU student leaders have laid down this year! Brooke, who just finished her 1L year and who is on tap to be on the CU board next year, quipped recently, "Just wait until next year!"

Thank you for your partnership with CU Gloria Law! Your prayers sustain us and strengthen us to be faithful on the HLS campus. Your financial generosity makes it possible for our students and this ministry to love the community well. I am so grateful for you and the legacy of faithfulness that you model for our students and alumni. Thank you for partnering with us in developing Christian leaders to transform our nation’s culture!

In sincerity and appreciation,
