The Voice of the Lowrie Center has Returned

It has been a year since you have heard from the Lowrie Center.  That is about to change as we move into 2018.  Throughout 2017 I have been praying and collaborating with stakeholders as to the role and future of the Lowrie Center.  In essence, I, together with the education faculty at CIU, have sought a "new beginning" while at the same time honoring the core values and purpose of the Lowrie Center.  I believe we are ready to move forward.  I am beginning  a series of posts that…

Thinking Critically During the Election Year: 2016

Give the Gift of Encouragement

The month of December is an emotional month.  The days are filled with excitement, joy, anxiety, and for some depression.  As we look at the world in which we now live and minister, we must acknowledge that fear and worry are also present.  Today’s students are “heavy laden” with the impact of brokenness.  Their hearts need to experience anew the good news of Christmas.  As we approach Christmas our students need to be reminded of the Truth---God is with us and cares for us.  These…
