My First Proxe

By: 
Jenna Spolarich

Before coming to Sonoma State University this fall, I had no idea what InterVarsity was or that the school had anything like it.

The first time I was asked to share the gospel at a Proxe Station, I tried to get out of it.

Integrating Faith and Science

Amy Hauptman
July 8, 2013

When two TEDxUCDavis talk organizers approached Bryan Enderle (a part-time InterVarsity staff and UC Davis Chemistry professor) and asked if he would be interested in presenting at this independently organized TED event, Bryan told the organizers that he wasn’t sure what he would speak on. He didn’t think that the general public wanted to hear a talk about chemistry.

But the two organizers (one of whom is an atheist), suggested the idea of presenting on “Science and God.”
Bryan thought, “If anything, I could do that!”

Lucas Pulley

I get the same answer almost every time: “Bible study and prayer.”

Though President Obama and Governor Romney will be spending the next few weeks outlining their vast differences, both of them share something in common that makes them unlike nearly 70% of presidents since 1877.

It’s not their fiscal, foreign, or family policies. And no, it’s not even their faith.

I Thirst

By: 
Nicole Carline

‘I thirst’ were the words from God above
God who left immortal to show his eternal love
‘I thirst’ is what he said
What he gasped as his lungs began to fill and collapse
As he hung there in agony on a tree to die
I sit, I think, and wonder….why

What was this thirst that he dispellingly cried?

A Risky Move

By: 
Jessica Fick

I didn’t expect Jesus to show up in a bar that evening. No, it wasn’t a hipster dude with a big beard. It was at my high school reunion where I reconnected with Chris—a formerly awkward and quiet student who now sported snazzy glasses, stylishly gelled hair, and an identity as an openly gay man.

I had braced myself for the various negative responses when I

The One Thing I Learned Last Year

By: 
Angie Giancola

Each morning, I find myself thinking: Less than two weeks? Less than two weeks! 

In less than two weeks, I’ll be back at school preparing for my senior year of college. Part of me feels like summer just started, but then part of me has been pining to get back to campus for months.
