Faith in Action is a name that has been floating around the Lubbock Christian University campus for several years – 20 to be exact. The group, founded on the James 2:18 verse, “Show me your faith without deeds and I’ll show you my faith by what I do,” has put forth the effort to do just that – show Jesus in actions. I am blessed to be a part of this ministry for what will be my fourth and final year in 2010-2011.

Fall, and the first week of school always remind me of new beginnings. Essentially, that’s what the first week of school is, a new beginning.

Even previous professors start the class with a clean slate.
