Church

Pandemics and the Church: What does History Teach us?

Plagues, disease, famines, wars, and natural disasters. These are hard realities of living in a fallen world we read about everywhere in the pages of Scripture, but a widespread pandemic is not unknown throughout the history of Christianity. Christians of the past and present inspire us with demonstrations of resilient faith and compassion in the midst of crisis.

Jordan Davis

Helping Students from a Standpoint of Truth

On first glance, it’s a nondescript office suite tucked in the back of the Vance Memorial Library. But the Counseling Center at DBU actually represents a sliver of progress in the pervasive national issue of college students’ mental health, which Dr. Jordan Davis has seen first-hand breaking through in both academic circles and Christian circles.

Combat to Campus

From Combat to Campus

Most veteran-students are between the ages of 24 and 40 and are juggling jobs and families in addition to being full-time students. Their intense experiences in active duty make it even harder to join in socially with traditional students, often leading to isolation. However, DBU provides them a supportive Christian environment where they can heal and grow.

CS Lewis

Wisdom for Disruptive Times from the Letters of C.S. Lewis

At a recent Friday Symposium on March 6, Dr. Mark Cook addressed the importance renowned scholar and author C.S. Lewis gave to interpersonal connectedness and encouragement through letter-writing. Now, as DBU shifts gears into going fully online and social distancing, Lewis’ kernels of wisdom shared by Dr. Cook seem all the more relevant during a time of disruption.

Elona Prroj Shares Incredible Story of Forgiveness in Chapel

Elona Prroj stood before DBU students in a recent chapel service still wearing the dust from her own valley 10 years after the murder of her husband in Albania. Her encouragement to the DBU students gathered in chapel that day, listening to her story, was to understand what forgiveness is and what it isn't. Forgiveness, Elona discovered, is a decision rather than just a feeling. And it’s not a one-time event like revenge.
