I am the faculty advisor for FOCUS, the Christian student club. We meet on Wednesdays from 1:00-2:00 pm in the Student Dining Hall for Bible study & prayer.
*NOTE: FOCUS is on hiatus due to pandemic restrictions
"Faithfulness to the truth of history involves far more than a research, however patient and scrupulous, into special facts. Such facts may be detailed with the most minute exactness, and yet the narrative, taken as a whole, may be unmeaning or untrue. The narrator must seek to imbue himself with the life and spirit of the time. He must study events in their bearings near and remote; in the character, habits, and manners of those who took part in them. He must himself be, as it were, a sharer or a spectator of the action he describes." - Francis Parkman
