College environments are a clash of culture, bringing together people from different backgrounds, faiths, and experiences. Parents often worry about whether their recent high school graduates will thrive in this new environment. How will their students create and maintain Christian community? Will they continue to study the Bible? Will they work to fulfill their Christian calling? For more than 70 years, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship has sought to provide solutions to all these challenges by engaging students in Bible study. With their Scripture-focused approach to ministry, Intervarsity helps students see that the relevance of the Word transcends cultural differences.—Jessi Gering
The Old Testament is full of stories about God using great leaders, like David and Moses. But God is not concerned only with people of power or status. Ruth and Naomi were women who had neither power nor position: Both were widows, and one was a foreigner. Although their circumstances were dire and they had little hope for the future, God used the events of their lives to pave the way for the Savior of humanity.—Miles Custis
Walk into most churches today, and you’ll find customized programs based on age, gender, and family life. We tend to think people need to be relegated into groups for tailored instruction on faith.
That’s why Paul’s commands in Titus 2 about instructing different groups seem practical and applicable in our modern context. These particular commands to the people of Crete seem like good models of faith we’d also want to adhere to. But perhaps there’s more to his instructions than we might think.—L. Timothy Swinson
