A few weeks ago, our Synod announced the launch of a
new web site focused on connecting and supporting college students, their congregations,
and campus ministries. It is called LCMS
U. The green collegiate block U, blue pennent, and white cross represent
our Witness, Mercy, and Life Together on campus.
purpose of this site is provide a place where we can encourage, support, and aid
students, faculty, and staff as they respond to the challenges to the truth of
Godˇ¦s Word they face as Christians on college campuses, so that they can boldly
bear witness to Christ.
LCMS U will start off with four
conducting a chapter drive to increase
the LCMS campus ministry network
offering training to those interested
in starting, or refocusing, a campus ministry,
increasing student involvement
in campus ministries
continuing the synod's sponsorship of national campus
This appears to be an excellent
website and resource for our young adults as they grow in their faith and grow
in their ability to serve our God during their college years.

28:12 poses a question that many in our age ask; "But where can wisdom be found?
Where does understanding dwell?” As Christians, we know the answer is in our Lord.
Proverbs 2:6 affirms this very well: “For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his
mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
