During these past four years of college, God
has been teaching me to treasure Him above
all things. He is worthy of all praise because
He saved us from our sins and gives us life,
hope, purpose and joy. I’ve enjoyed being a
part of Cornerstone Magazine because we
strive to share this good news with the Brown
community. Love God, love others, and in
all that you do, do it for the glory of God!
What good is it for someone to gain the
whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
(Mark 8:36, NIV)
At Brown, I have learned that in order to find
my purpose, I have to surrender my pride and
personal preoccupations. It’s in this submission
to God that I’ve begun to find true freedom.
My time at Brown has taught me to view
Christianity more as a call to compassion
than a set of beliefs. Being surrounded by
so many resilient and passionate people of
all religious backgrounds has inspired me to
pursue active love (which I’ve learned can
take on so many forms) in all that I do.
