Anticipating the Messiah

Message from the Alumni Director

I’ve been re-reading the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Paul’s epistles this year. Through this, I’ve gained a deeper appreciation for the weight of the disappointment that must have been experienced both by God and His people when Israel failed to recognize the gift of the promised Messiah. In spite of such clear prophecies, Israel let the most momentous event in history go by unnoticed. Talk about anti-climactic! Read the rest of this entry »

Thanksgiving: History & History

Yes, we know we put "history" in the title twice. That's because there's the real history that consists of a history of First Nation people and public proclamations of calls to be thankful from - of all entitities - the US Government.

Also, there's the MU Blog "history" of Thanksgiving posts.

Can Evangelicals Really Be Academics?

We ran across an essay at Inside Higher Ed that was written after the author read the new book titled The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age. It begs many questions of those who consider themselves both academic and an Evangelical. We're pretty sure our faculty fit this profile and that our alumni have an opinion on the matter.

World Citizen First, MU Student Second

Multnomah University just couldn't be what it is without its students. This post is part of a new series written by students, about students. Our hope is that prospective students can get a feel for what the student body is like and alumni can get to know who it is that they support.

Our first featured student is Jenae Kaldunski, a missionary kid from Medford, Oregon.

Jongeward Journeys

"I came across a quote the other day that said, 'We had the experience, but we missed the meaning'. Today I want to share with you the most difficult experience I have ever had. But I want to share with you the meaning... God has a way of turning tragedy into victory. Our story is a story of loss and of pain, but also a story of great gain."

Advertising Cinco De Mustache

Cinco de Mustache culminates in a multitude of mustachioed men, no mere mirage but a magnificent mass of manliness, merriment, and mastery of the follicle arts.

This year, we students searched pictures of Cincos past and took some of the best we found to create a 5 part advertisement series, as well as one revision of the famous limerick about the Gun Powder Plot of 1605. Enjoy.

Missionaries of Assurance

Missionaries of Assurance

Jesse and Krista Ashman - BA 2003, BS 2003

Raising support for overseas ministry is a bear! Depending on support while living overseas is a whole other beast! My wife and I are beginning our fifth year in overseas ministry. While raising support, we were given a lot of good advice from books and seasoned missionaries. But now that we have moved overseas and become dependent on that support, the challenge of financial unpredictability hasn’t gone away. Even from the shores of Sweden, we read stories of economic hardship…and we, like many others, feel vulnerable. But maybe that’s the point. Read the rest of this entry »

Cinco de Mustache 2011

Who can argue with the sheer manliness of Cinco de Mustache? That's right. No one. The men of MU gave it their all today, singing their hearts out--mugs of milk in-hand--to the applauding masses that filed in to witness the spectacle. Even College Preview visitors participated in the festivities, armed with fake mustaches.

Faculty involvement is up, no doubt due to the prominence of their colleague Dr. Ray Lubeck, the events' reigning dignitary, who gave the most inspiring speech in recent Cinco history.

Rehearsing God’s Story

Rehearsing God’s Story

Message from the Alumni Director

“As the people of God, we are to live, to eat, and to breathe the story of God… We are to know it and to be transformed by it. It is to give us language and vocabulary to explain what is happening in our lives and what we are living for.” Dr. Mike Roth (M. Div ’03, BS ‘00) Read the rest of this entry »
