Your 'Kairos' Moment


If there were one character trait your class has embodied over the last four years, it would be “perseverance.”


Reflections from a (mostly) former chapel skipper


My friend Francis has participated in well over 98,000 chapels. His intentional community in California (St. Andrews Abbey, Los Angeles) takes discipleship seriously. Francis’ participation in chapel five times a day for over 50 years has made him a different kind of human being — one marked by a beautiful, deep peace and joy (Psalm 92:14).

The eclipse and God’s beautiful creation


In a few short weeks, we will witness one of the most awe-inspiring events we have ever seen. On that day, the moon, a celestial object having roughly the diameter of the United States, will pass directly between us and the sun. In doing so, it will plunge us into shadow.


Reality of the resurrection


“Why do people think it is unbelievable that God raises the dead?” (Acts 26:8). The question strikes us today as naïve, just as it must have struck Porcius Festus and Herod Agrippa II in the original context. Paul can’t be serious. For realists, the resurrection is fiction. People think the resurrection’s unbelievable because it is unbelievable! 


Intercultural communication


There are several trends in intercultural communication education in many universities. One model favors experiential learning, while the other focuses on addressing inequities of various kinds. Each of these makes its own worthwhile contribution to intercultural learning, but here at Taylor, there is a way to do even more.
