Freethinkers for Christ

6 Jun

It’s around 2 a.m. and Monday night has faded into Tuesday morning. Stacer is driving back to his house just five minutes from the University of Connecticut with nothing more in his system than coffee when the flashing lights of a police car appear behind him.

“Here we go again,” he mumbles under his breath.

The officer asks why he’s out at that hour, and Stacer answers that he’s been discussing the philosophical implications of the Christian worldview with skeptics. The officer himself seems skeptical. Stacer shows his license and demonstrates no reason for suspicion. The officer allows Stacer to continue on his way without penalty.

As a way of sending Ryan off to where God was calling him next—Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary—students were asked to share specific things about Ryan that had encouraged them in his time on staff with Cru.

Several students shared from their seats, but one in particular stood out. In front of a room filled almost entirely with Christians, a Freethinkers member spoke. He said he really appreciated Ryan’s patience and kindness and went on to say that even though he does not adhere to the Christian worldview, he now admires it.

For Ryan, it was special enough to see him present at the meeting. But hearing him share about him was something unexpectedly amazing. Although Ryan won’t be able to personally be a part of his journey as much as he would like, he is confident that God is moving in his heart.

Those were excerpts from a fascinating article found at The Gospel Coalition website.  I strongly encourage you to check it out in its entirety at their website, here.
