Eyes Shut, Not Sleeping

These days I have the joy and privilege of speaking at many campuses and churches around the country.

And yet as my skills and experience have increased, my trust in these qualities has diminished. Honestly, I feel helpless out there quite often, carried along in ministry only by your care and prayers.

So if you see me walking around campus or church with my eyes closed, you’ll know why. As my good pal Rob Taylor has often remarked, “All the gifts and abilities God has given us, we give right back to him.” Amen to that.

These days I’m on the road a lot, working increasingly with grad students. And when I’m not traveling, I’m still the InterVarsity Staff at Hamline University in St. Paul, where we have a small but strong fellowship.

InterVarsity’s new “2030 calling”: To reach every corner of every campus by the year 2030.

Gosh, I’ll probably be retired by 2030, who knows. In any case it’s fun to be part of a movement that’s working on over 700 campuses, headed toward 2500 campuses in partnership with other ministries such as Chi Alpha, FCA, and Cru.

June 30 is the end of our fiscal year. This month would be a lovely time to give a gift (or extra gift) to my work. Thanks so much!
