I’m a pretty nerdy guy. I collected comic books in grade school. At age 13, I could answer any piece of Star Wars trivia you could come up with. Today, if you press me hard enough, I can name Star Trek episodes by their number. Yep… welcome to my world.

“Brittany, are you going to Urbana?” asked my senior small group leader “I don’t know. It’s a lot of money, but I might sign up later,” I responded. That was freshman year. I never did sign up.

Okay, say what you want, but I love Disney movies. This love stems largely from my 90s childhood, when enchanted castles existed, genies lived in magic lamps, and lions were kings.

As a huge Marvel fan (my students call me a geek – out of love, of course), I’ve been waiting for the movie The Avengers for a very long time.

There is no set formula for discovering God’s will. Instead, consider this discovery like viewing a constellation. When we look into the night sky, we need to see clusters of stars to view a constellation.

Christian organizations are having a difficult time on some of our university campuses these days, and I believe it will only get worse.
