Finish the Race

News

  Our mission at Point is to develop young men and women for Christ-centered service and leadership throughout the world in whatever profession they choose. Our mantra this year is “Many parts…One Body” and previously has been“Our story is not finished yet.”  As I sat thinking on these ideas a sermon heard many years ago […]

What Can We Do?

News

This semester I’m teaching Biblical Interpretation to a group of 40 students who, for the most part, aren’t Bible majors. Their careers will be as diverse as police officers, psychologists, coaches, doctors, or musicians. But one thing unites them—they live in a world in desperate need of Jesus. Around every corner and with every flip […]

What’s in a Name?

News

One of my favorite women in history is Chief Wilma Mankiller of the Cherokee Nation.  What a name!  You can talk about Betty and Wilma of Flintstones fame or the obvious connotations of Mankiller.  Not only was Chief Mankiller one of the first female chiefs of a major American Indian tribe, she also played a […]

Day 7: Designed for Community

News

In June 2014, Dr. Susan Ryan and I took a group of Point students on a tour of Europe. A few months before our departure, once the final roster of travelers was settled, I remember realizing that many of the students going on the trip didn’t know each other – or us! – very well. […]

Day 6: In His Image

News

The Bible opens in Genesis 1 with Creation: God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness….” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Gen 1:26-27, NIV) What does the text mean when it says humans are […]

Day 5: Great Grace

News

The best word to describe how we have become God’s holy people is grace.  The Apostle Paul says in Ephesians that we have been saved by grace through faith.  Faith is important.  We believe that God created us, loves us, and wants us to be His people.  But we have a sin problem.  And God’s […]

Day 4: Are We There Yet?

News

I remember as a little girl traveling with my family to see my grandparents who lived a couple of states away. We might have been driving for about twenty minutes, when inevitably a quick question would be asked. You can probably guess what it was. Yep… “Are we there yet?” My mom assured me that […]

Day 3: Step Out and Reach In

News

“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:9-10 NIV) I like comfort, we all do. By fearing loss, failure, pain or uncertainty we seek out a comfortable path that can cushion us from the […]

Day 2: Put Me in Coach

News

I am a college football fan. Specifically, I am an Alabama Crimson Tide football fan. You are reading this the day after Alabama will have played Clemson for the national championship. That was also the last college football game to be played in 8 ½ months…sigh. There are many storied names among the Tide players. […]

Day 1: 21 Day Devotional

News

Today we begin a 21 day journey in prayer together. As president of Point University I am asking that you join me in praying every day for Point University.
