Dear CU Gloria Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

Since late August, CU Gloria upperclassmen and CU ministry faculty have been pouring themselves out to welcome first-years and their friends into the community. Picnics, a dorm drop, a scavenger hunt in Boston, and our weekly lecture series (pictured below)—not to mention countless caffeinated beverages consumed in one-on-one conversations in and around the Yard. Our collective efforts, thankfully, have led to a happy influx of people (and not just freshmen).

CU Gloria Lecture Series 2022

We just returned from our Fall Retreat at HUME in Western Massachusetts. Sixty-five students attended (most are pictured below), including several leaders from Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design. Having been a part of roughly ten thousand retreats over the years (slight exaggeration), I can say unequivocally that there is no better place to grow in our relationship with God and each other. This weekend was no different. The presence of God was palpable and life-renewing, course-correcting decisions were made all around. We will share individual stories in the next prayer letter.

CU Gloria Fall Retreat 2022

Please pray that we, “may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18-19), and that decisions and commitments made on retreat would be cemented and fulfilled. Please also pray for our student leaders who are facing pushback from some classmates for their alignment with scriptural teachings and doctrines. More to follow on this as well.

Thank you for your partnership in the gospel at Harvard!
