Christian Union will host the CU Cities Conference in New York City from June 19 - 20, 2020. Graduate students, young professionals, seasoned professionals are invited from across industries, to explore compelling ideas about faith and its relevance to every facet of our lives.

Monday, January 20 - Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Join fellow Christians across America in a ten-day fast (fasting from food). Participants will follow the example of men and women of Scripture who humbled themselves and sought the Lord through fasting. Our country needs the spiritual renewal that only God can bring. May He hear our cry and answer!

Starting Monday, January 20, 2020, participants will seek God through the biblical practice of fasting. You may choose to fast from all foods for the entire ten days—drinking only liquids—or you may choose to fast one or two meals each day. For some, health limitations will require a different type of fast (see fasting resources). However God leads you, we are thrilled to have you be a part.

Yale students are seeking to change the moral, cultural, and political landscape surrounding abortion on their campus and beyond. 

Vita et Veritas

By Luke Brown, Dartmouth ’18

 

Yale students are seeking to change the moral, cultural, and political landscape surrounding abortion on their campus and beyond. 

 

Through Vita et Veritas, a pro-life conference in its seventh year, the student organizers from Choose Life at Yale (CLAY) aimed to provide a venue for thoughtful, productive, and nonpartisan discussion of the abortion issue and its broader implications for scholars, activists, and students. CLAY members “believe the right to life is fundamental, and we design our conference to help and inspire others to advocate for the lives of the unborn,” according to its website.

At Christian Union Day and Night, we’re experimenting with a “devotional playlist” concept on YouTube. Thirty-minute playlists curated by our staff will provide ten minutes of worship music from top Christian artists, ten minutes of audio Bible reading, and ten minutes of guided prayer time.

Remember the tape desk at church? I bet your church had one. As a child, I watched the adults drop a dollar or two in the donation box for a recording of last week’s sermon on audio cassette. Maybe they had missed the service, or perhaps they had enjoyed the sermon so much that they wanted to buy a tape for their friend. I remember that the tapes were pretty popular. More than a few copies were made each week for consumption by a small congregation.

 

Princeton Students Lead National March for Life 

By Jon Garaffa, Princeton ’20

 

On Friday, January 18, students from Princeton University were at the forefront of the March for Life in Washington, D.C., an annual rally aiming to protest peacefully the practice and legality of abortion in the United States. The rally started in 1974 and takes places annually near the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the decision of the Supreme Court to decriminalize abortion.

 

This year, students from Princeton Pro-Life led the march, chanting in the front row as they proceeded through the city. Many Princeton students had come to the march in previous years. “It was really different to be able to march in the front and see all the people we were leading,” stated Allie Burton ’17, who served as past vice president of Princeton Pro-Life and made her third trip back to D.C. this year. “Personally, it was a very special moment for me when we marched past the Supreme Court.” Ally Cavazos ’19, the president emerita of Princeton Pro-Life, gave a speech to the crowd to fit the pro-science theme of the March for 2019: “Unique from Day One.”

“But Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the king's food, or with the wine that he drank. Therefore he asked the chief of the eunuchs to allow him not to defile himself.” - Daniel 1:8

Who can stand against the living God when He chooses to act? No matter where our culture is currently, everything will change in a heartbeat when the God of the nations acts - and He acts when His people rise up, repent of sins, pray and fast and seek His face. What could be better than joining with so many others across the U.S. to fight in the spiritual realms through prayer and fasting?
