Giving up What I Can't Keep to Gain What I’ll never Lose

I became a Christian during my freshman year of college through the ministry of Intervarsity. In the fall of 1991, I arrived on campus, excited and ready to learn. My home for the next stage of my education was a prestigious, small, secular liberal arts university.

I came from a Catholic background, where faith was more cultural than personal. So, while my values reflected some familiarity and regard for religion, I had no real  personal investment in it. Unbeknownst to me, the first person I befriended was, a Christian.
