Shine Bright!

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.  Matthew 5:16
Neon Yellow shirts have almost become our trademark here at Cornell.  The implications of Jesus’ words above are many, but as we kick things off  we want to “be bright.”  Amidst all the options and distractions, our hope is that Cru's gospel centered community would be very visible!  We have the best news in the world and we want everyone to know where to find it!
God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.  Matthew 5:14 (The Message paraphrase)
Because the beginning of the year is such a strategic time, we strive to be present all over campus.  We host events, and we also show up to events that the University puts on. We want to be present and visible anywhere that we can be to make connections with students as the year begins.  
No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. (Mt. 5:15)  That's what we are trying to do!  We want to "get up on the lamp-stand" so to speak.
