From SBUlife magazine: "They will know we are Christians by our love, or will they?"
Over the past year, your alma mater has been embroiled in a denominational controversy that has made national headlines. Challenges to the University's commitment to kingdom work and theological integrity have been the primary focus. Nevertheless, I view these challenges as opportunities to clarify who we are and always have been as a university.
