Serving God with Campus Crusade for Christ Int.

Sometimes various parts of life converge in interesting ways. When it happens to me, the phrase that pops into my mind is, ‘What a small world’. I remember it happening in Colorado last year at Campus Crusade’s national staff conference. Joseph Stowell, who was president at M.B.I. when I was there, was a guest speaker. After he spoke one day, I went down front to try and say hi. Well, he had to catch a plane and a few hundred people had the same idea, so I didn’t get to talk to him. (my fault for waiting until the last day) But I did run into a guy from my dorm at Moody, Kevin Smith. Kevin is now on staff with Priority Associates, a Crusade ministry. We chatted very quickly and I got his card.

Today I see that on the main Crusade web site there is a story about what is going on in New Orleans and some of the Crusade folks involved in the effort. It is a powerful story that I think brings into sharp relief what Crusade is all about. It is cool too that it features my friend Kevin. What a great convergence of two institutions I love – Moody and Crusade.
