End of an Era

The Western Front, WWU's newspaper, has a story about my beloved campus ministry. As most of you know, I was an avid participant in the ministry ever since my reversion to the faith my sophomore year of college. It existed in an "ecumenical setting." In other words, the building we spent our time in was co-owned by a Lutheran ministry and was used by a Jewish Group.

That setting is no longer. We moved out/left/were evicted, whatever you prefer. Things have been... well... not good between the Catholics and the Lutherans for a long time, with the Jews caught in the middle. The split has been in the works for a long time, but it became reality last week when we packed up and moved.

Its kind of sad. It would have been nice for it to have worked out. Yet I think the Catholics will benefit from it. As the article said, they were at maximum capacity and were restricted on when to use the building. Now they will have their own place (hopefully a nice place real soon) and the ministry will continue to grow and evangelize a very (very) secular campus.

Please pray for the students.
