PRESIDENT’S BLOG

Personal Note from the President:

“I never planned to be the President of a University, especially an elite University like ACU. My serving in this role way was not my idea. But, God often puts us in a place — and for a time — for reasons he only knows. During the past seven years, I have been surprised and delighted by the many ways God’s favor has falled on this campus and academic community. It is a result of God’s grace, and the hard work of our faculty, staff and students, that we find ourselves on this excellent new campus, recognized by credible organizations as a “Best College” or the #1 ranked University in Arizona.

To quote a favorite hymn, “to God be the glory, great things hath he done”

What Should We Fear?

National Day of Prayer. March 15, 2020

In modern America most of us live with the illusion of control over our earthly lives. Constant improvements in medicine, health and safety standards, along with peace and prosperity at home – these things together have allowed us to minimize risk. (Those living in poverty anywhere or deployed to war zones abroad have no such illusions.) So it is that most of us are disrupted by occasional weather tragedies, untimely celebrity deaths, airplane crashes, or the cancer diagnosis of a friend or family member – we are briefly jarred out of the illusion of safety. But how quickly and easily we return to that false comfort.
