ON A MISSION: Greek InterVarsity's Straub, center, parties at his house
College is traditionally a time of transition and new freedoms, the years when young people have to figure out for the first time who they are. The task is even more complex for the growing number of devout young Christians on secular college campuses who feel called to approach this time in a way that sets them apart. They draw inspiration from Paul's letter to the Romans:"Do not be conformed to this world." But the Bible gives few details on how to navigate the collegiate world in 2005, leaving Christians to grapple with tough questions as they try to integrate their beliefs--and themselves--into college life: Can they be, like Straub, both a brother in Christ and a brother in a frat? Or should they live only with other believers? How do they deal with stereotypes of Christianity that others may hold? And what does it mean to live out their faith on a secular campus like Indiana's?...
You could have added, Neil, a lifetime with Christian parents, and these kids can't figure out who they are? I have to agree with the comment, of being in the world and not of it. Indian Hills Community Church bought and old fraternity house on the University of Nebraska -- Lincoln campus, to be able to be a Christian witness on the U.N. L. campus, and to give a place for Christian students to live and congregate. I believe our Alpha & Omega house has been a success.
