Being Formed in Whose Image?
Register NowThe busyness of the academy, family life, and society is so pervasive that we often don’t recognize how this and other forces around us are forming our lives. God calls us to something different. It may involve the same roles and responsibilities, but it has a different rhythm – one focused on abiding in Christ. What does this look like? Join us for to engage with this question.
- Enjoy a time of rest within a vibrant community of singles, couples, and families.
- Network with other Christ-followers in academia.
- Participate in a variety of workshops, teachings, and practices around spiritual formation.
And Jesus said to them (and by extension us, those who work at The Ohio State University)
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)
This year this is our Theme verse. Consider its meaning in your life, in your world. Let us know what you think.
We have a free gift for you (a reminder of our calling each day at OSU) while supply lasts. just click this graphic and send us your contact information.
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!
