Christian Student Fellowship to pack 100,000 meals for Haiti

28 Aug

Image“Students, faculty and staff will join forces Wednesday in an effort to pack 100,000 meals for Haiti in Christian Student Fellowship’s largest outreach event ever.

“We came up with the idea to energize students and supply a need for food,” said Brian Marshall, a lead campus minister for CSF.

For an event of this magnitude, Marshall expects close to 28,000 students, faculty and staff toparticipate.

In 2010, immediately after a magnitude 7 earthquake hit Haiti, countries around the world rushed to deliver care packages and medical assistance to those affected.

Southland Christian Church in Lexington was active in sending meals to Haiti, and CSF joined the effort before starting its own outreach.

Plans for the event began almost a month before K-week started.

CSF is asking alumni and current members for donations to help with the $20,000 cost to pack and send the meals to Haiti, Marshall said.

“We want people to give because they want to give,” he said.

CSF has a partnership with Lifeline Christian Mission, a nonprofit organization founded in Haiti, which will distribute the meals.

Lifeline is a nondenominational Christian ministry that has worked to feed, clothe and shelter people around the world since 1980.

Several CSF staff members have connections to Haiti through mission work, including Blake Morris, who has been to Haiti a few times and witnessed the nation’s conditions.

Morris went to Haiti for a mission trip when he was 10 years old.

He and his parents helped to build a base for the Northwest Haiti Christian Mission during the trip.

Morris said the experience in Haiti influenced his life.

“I saw widespread poverty, spiritual oppression, political oppression and many other things that broke my heart at a very young age,” he said.

In college, Morris took two more trips to Haiti for mission work in Port-de-Paix, and upon graduation, he joined CSF .

“Everything I learned about serving those in Haiti can be applied to UK. We have neighbors on campus that need help here too,” he said.

Anyone can come to the CSF Building Wednesday to help the group reach their goal of providing 100,000 meals for people in need.

All are encouraged to register for the event online at

CSF Building, 4 p.m. – 12 a.m. Wednesday”

My Spiritual Widening

21 Aug

Damon Garcia


The past few weeks have been an experience of spiritual widening. I grew up in a Pentecostal church and the more I read other perspectives and talk with others about their perspectives I cannot look at the perspective I grew up with the same way; which has been good. Of course people have suggested to me that I need to understand the foundation I grew up with before I venture off other places, so I went and bought Foundations of Pentecostal Theology and I’m halfway through. However, the more I read, the more amusing it seems to me this idea of a Pentecostal Jesus.

While at a denominational convention in Florida I met a girl who told everyone she grew up in Tennessee and has been living in Oregon for two years. Everyone was surprised because her background wasn’t evident in her voice. People asked her “why don’t you…

“Zombie Claims” and Jesus the “Zealot”

16 Aug

Larry Hurtado's Blog

One of the things variously amusing and annoying is the re-appearance of ideas and claims in my own area of expertise as if something new, something suppressed (e.g., by us scholars supposedly) and reeeeally racy and sensationally important but that are in fact simply re-hashings (or re-packagings) of previous claims that were quite adequately and convincingly discredited years (or even decades) ago.  I call these “zombie claims”:  No matter how often you kill ’em off with the facts, they come back again, typically after sufficient years have passed that the news media will have forgotten the previous appearance(s) (and the memory of today’s news media is impressively short).

Indeed, in today’s world of internet and e-communication, such zombie claims get a new life rather quickly, and get buzzed around the world almost overnight.  The latest zombie claim to come to my attention (at least in my field) is pushed in Zealot:  The…
