Steel2019

Although the twentieth century saw several landmark contributions to Christian apologetics, including C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity, these Christian classics have lost some of their effectiveness in an era when America is more pluralistic than ever before and many Americans imagine that science has explained or will soon explain all of the mysteries of life. Many Americans doubt that a two thousand year religion can possibly make sense of the complexities of the contemporary world. Professor Skeel will argue that this perception gets things precisely backwards.

Salon with Paul Glader

Join CU New York on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 from 7-9pm as we discuss the topic, "God and the Newsroom." 

How should religious people, namely Christians, think about and approach the news media? What do we think of politician's calling journalists “the enemy of the people?” What about the problem of misinformation and the application (and misapplication) of the term “Fake News”? Why is the news media important? How and why should Christian believers consider it a noble sector in which to work? A veteran Wall Street Journal reporter and a journalism professor shares some perspective and some history.

Salon with Chuck Stetson

George Barna’s research now shows that only 7 percent of the 244 million adult Americans have a Biblical worldview. If culture is to be redeemed in a lasting way, an increase in Biblical literacy is essential. We invite Chuck Stetson to talk to us about the state of Biblical literacy in America and how to proliferate knowledge about our faith’s foundational text.

Students Experience Personalized Prayer at Nexus 2019

Sarah Camp

In February, Christian Union hosted more than 200 undergraduates at Nexus 2019: The Christian Union Conference on Faith and Action. Students from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale converged for three days in New Brunswick, New Jersey, to meet one another, seek God together through worship and prayer, and explore how God could use their aspirations and influence for His glory and society’s good.

BathedinPrayer2019

Through plenary speakers, breakout sessions, and small groups, the conference offered insight, inspiration, networking, and practical advice on discerning God's purpose for life, campus, and career. A variety of vocational panels were led by  Christian professionals representing a variety of fields. Another highlight of the weekend was SpokenWord. Student teams presented Scripture dynamically, interweaving dramatic, poetic presentations.

The plenary speakers anchored the conference with inspiring talks that unpacked the conference theme of being “Courageous in the Ways of the Lord”. A student from Yale explained, “The message to go forth in courage in the ways of the Lord has encouraged me to put down my fears … and step up, listening to what he calls me to do, and obeying it.”

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
     his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
     they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
     and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
— Psalm 145:3-5

Jesus gives radical commands in the Bible, such as to “take up your own cross and follow me.”

This is a call to kill our own desires and follow him in loving others sacrificially, even to the point of death. Often-times, these commands come alongside warnings.
