The Vine Keeps Growing

The Memory-Making Business

Have you ever thought about the process that went into designing your favorite t-shirt?

A Point of Connection

On a bright Thursday afternoon, five Fort Wayne graduates gathered in a cozy diner for a Share YOUR Voice session. Some came during lunch break, decked out in blazers and nametags. They filtered through the door one at a time—all coming from different directions, all in different walks of life. But as we sat down […]

As We Pray

This is a busy time of semester for students like me. Do you remember what that felt like? We’re starting to feel the pressure of classes, internships and other responsibilities bearing down on us, and sometimes it can snuff out our spiritual energy. It starts to feel like we’re doing it alone. Thankfully, this is […]
