Prayer Request: Campus Access.

Posted by tom | Mar 10, 2013

"The latest development comes from Washington DC, where the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that a briefing will be held on March 22nd. The purpose of the briefing is to work on reconciling the principles of nondiscrimination and religious liberties. One of the panels will focus on the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of CLS v. Martinez, that is discussed below. InterVarsity staff and students will submit statements for the briefing." -- http://www.intervarsity.org/news/campus-faith-%E2%80%93-civil-rights-issue

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2).

Join me in praying for

  1. InterVarsity staff, students, and faculty currently in the midst of campus access concerns (at various stages)
    • "Rollins College has decided to strip the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship of official recognition as a student group because it requires leaders to be Christian and support certain views, the Orlando Sentinel reported. . . . " -- Inside Higher Ed. 3/8/2013. Click here.
  2. discernment regarding what is prepared for and shared at this briefing
  3. the conversation, act of persuasion, at the briefing
  4. the next steps taken by those with decision making authority throughout the various governmental (and campus) structures.
