Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
— Peter 2:11-12

Christian Union Students Serve in Sorority, Fraternity 

by francine barchett, cornell ’20

DavidCornellIn February, a Cornell fraternity made national headlines for a disturbing hazing incident that awarded points for sexual activity and simultaneously degraded women.

Negative press on fraternity and sorority culture is hardly a Cornell-specific phenomenon. It reinforces a long-enduring sentiment that Greek life and high ethical standards are mutually exclusive. However, for Alanna Staffin ’18, David Navadeh ’19, and Chris Arce ’19, that perception is far from the complete picture. They maintain that fraternity life has not drowned their Christian faith; it has grown it.

Over fifty recent graduates and young professionals crowded onto the Manhattan II yacht for a wonderful night of fellowship facilitated by “CU Mingle Bingo” (both an icebreaker and tongue-twister in one), delicious appetizers, and perfect fall weather.

Christian Union’s freshman campaigns at Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale are helping to share the Gospel with the Class of 2022 and lay the foundation for significant spiritual growth during college and beyond

Welcoming the Class of 2022

[N]either he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.  - 1 Corinthians 3:7

Christian Union’s freshman campaigns at Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale helped to share the Gospel with the Class of 2022 and laid the foundation for significant spiritual growth during college and beyond.

Freshman campaign is the all-out effort to prepare for, pray over, reach out to, invite, welcome in, connect, and care for the newest students arriving at these universities. We are grateful for how God moved through these efforts! Our prayer is that He would use this process to bring freshmen into deeper fellowship with Himself and members of His body.

Student leaders and upperclassmen involved in the ministry on each campus, along with Christian Union ministry fellows, held more than 4,000 meetings to get to know students personally and connect them to Christian resources.

Editor’s note: The following article, by the late scholar and preacher of revival Dr. J. Edwin Orr (1912-1987), was reprinted from www.jedwinorr.com.

Dr. A. T. Pierson once said, “There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.” Let me recount what God has done through concerted, united, sustained prayer.

Penn Senior Hopes to Serve Overseas as a Nurse

by catherine elvy, staff writer

A University of Pennsylvania student was so touched by her parents’ missionary service in Kazakhstan that she is gearing up to follow in their footsteps.

During her childhood, Abby Burns ’19 watched her father and mother minister in culturally diverse Kazakhstan. Such experiences left a deep imprint upon the nursing major’s heart and ignited a fervor also to venture into mission fields. “It was an incredible opportunity,” said Burns. “It has shaped what I am thinking about and what I am passionate about long term.”
