In conjunction with the Christian Graduate Student Alliance (CGSA) we will have our annual Carol Sing in the Round Room on the third floor of the Ohio Union. Join us and bring your lunch or buy it in the Union Food Market. We will have a time of fellowship and song as we relate the history of selected carols and then sing them together. We will be led by musicians from CGSA and Sue Collins presenting readings and introducing the carols.
November 12, Saturday 9am – 3pm.
Location: 269 Arps Hall
The Fall 2016 Midwest Grad & Faculty Symposium invites you to join us for a one-day multi-campus symposium with Dr. Christian Lundberg to explore “Dialogue within the University“. A cluster-conference to gather colleagues from six campuses across four states to learn from, dialogue with, and engage one another using dynamic technology.
How can we better write and speak about our work on campus and our faith in Jesus Christ to a broader audience?
We are followers of Christ and through him “all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible” (Col 1:16). As university faculty, grad students, administrators, and staff, we are engaged in exploring these things– and as such we have the unique opportunity to help others see the points of connection between Christian faith, life, and culture; between ancient wisdom and new discoveries.
Dr. Christian Lundberg, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, is co-director of the University Program in Cultural Studies and associate professor of rhetoric. He is author of Public Speaking: Choice and Responsibility (Cengage, 2104) and holds a PhD in Communication Studies from Northwestern University.
I hope you will consider joining others from central Ohio and across the Midwest. To sign up, so that we can plan for refreshments and handouts, please register at: Faculty Symposium.

YOU ARE THE LIGHT
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5:14-16New Living Translation)
We have an OSU student’s Mom who is in a Moms in Prayer group that would like to pray specifically for Christian professors and employees at OSU. If you would like to have their support in prayer please let me know by clicking here. The list goes no farther than her notebook and the prayers go no farther than their group…no privacy will be invaded. What a great service for our Fellowship!
The site’s archives have been updated and the audio for past talks are are available at the Archives page.
Fellowship with Christian Faculty and Staff doesn’t need to be confined to once a month or so! One of the things our Steering Committee has talked about is forming prayer clusters all over campus. Do you know one (or more) believer(s) on faculty or staff in your department or building? Have you thought about meeting over coffee or lunch once a week to once a month to pray for 15 minutes for each other’s ministry on campus, your department(s), and for the work of Christ at Ohio State? Why not ask them what they think about the idea?
If you find someone who is interested, decide when you can get together for the first time, and then whether you want to continue to meet regularly, and email Bob Trube at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested but don’t know anyone else in your department/building, email Bob as well, and as we learn of others nearby on campus also seeking a group, we’ll match you up. We’ll send you some tips that have helped other prayer groups nurture a dynamic prayer life together and see God work. We would love to see a network of faculty and staff across the campus bathing Ohio State in prayer. Imagine what the Lord might do!
