Why College Matters to God In the introductory chapter of Why College Matters to God, the author focused on what a worldview is and why it is important in a Christian college setting. According to the author, “A worldview is a framework of ideas, values, and beliefs about the basic makeup of the world.” One point made was that worldviews are more about actions, not just beliefs.
Munsil differentiates the two relationships, as mentioned previously, but also voices his opinion that Christian based schools, as well as ACU, should be committed to “continuing to advance in the Gospel and evangelizing nonbelieving students” (Musil, L. (1960)). Not all students that are admitted into ACU possess a connection with Christ, and that ratio is escalating. ACU’s mission to serve the Lord in everything ties into what Munsil is trying to say. The Lord calls everyone to serve Him, and everything that happens is His plan. If a non-believing student attends a Christian based school, it is the school’s mission to attempt to preach the truth and possibly build a loving relationship between the student and God.

Instead of withdrawing from the public stage, Angelina and Sarah went on to achieve more notoriety, in 1838, Angelina testified at a Committee of the Legislature of the State of Massachusetts, becoming the first American woman to testify in a legislative meeting. Later in 1838, at the age of 33, Angelina married abolitionist Theodore Dwight Weld, and they moved with Sarah to Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Many white women worked in Freedom Schools established by SNCC, because of the danger they would have faced working in the field. Freedom schools were originally established to teach African American high school students lessons in history and other subjects, because the education they received from public schools was not very good. They originally had a curriculum, but it was hard to follow. SNCC volunteers were not teachers and did not know about every topic. One staff member said to the volunteers, “You’ll meet on someone’s lawn under a tree. You’ll tear up the curriculum and teach what you know.” Eventually, Freedom Schools babysat black children, taught adults how to read and filled the needs of the students. Sandra Adickes, a black

They were also founded on the truth that there is a living God, and there are things to be known and discovered outside of the empirical (or hard) sciences (such as physics and
The origins of the monastic life made its appearance within the third century. Many hermits desired to live a solitary life, soon after this lifestyle became so sought after, that communities of monks arose across the desert. Eventually, rules and guidelines were created the felicitate the daily activity of everyday hermits. During the fifth century, a monk, Saint Benedictine, entered into a heritage already rich in tradition. Amid these years many biographies were written, describing their way of life. Referencing scripture, Saint Benedict wrote a “brief and highly practical guide to monastic life based on his years as an abbot and as an observer of human behavior in communal life”1, thus, The Rule of Saint Benedict. By providing step by step instruction the Rule, Saint Benedict ensured the most efficient way to serve God through obedience.
