Unwrapping the Gift of Christ

"For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season of tinsel and twinkling lights…holiday tunes and crowded shopping malls. December has come and brought along with it the joys of Christmas. I love this season and everything that it brings. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t you folks ever read your Bibles?

Don’t you folks ever read your Bibles?

Bob and Cindi Norsworthy - BS 1983, Wives Certificate 1983

That phrase, and the passion for personal engagement with the Word of God that evoked the challenge, is indelibly etched in a winsome way, in the heart and mind of every alum that ever experienced the life of Dr. John G. Mitchell.

It’s been thirty-three years since I first felt the passion and the intercession behind those words, delivered in that thick Scottish brogue. Yet those words still lead and guide me today, to a sacred and private place of intimacy with my Jesus and the only source in the universe of any “real life” … the Word of God.

They Love Living @ MU

Recently, our Student Services department (they run student housing and residence life, amongst other things) ran a contest for students to tell them, via video, why they love living at Multnomah.

There was  a modest cash prize - but the real cheddar was getting on to the homepage and promoted via this blog!

The Vid

This video is so good, it makes all of us who are already graduated want to re-enroll and move back in!

Congrats to William A. Beatty for a great production and to Greg Woodman for some sweet original music!

And seriously, this video was 100% student-produced!

MU Sign Gets Some “LOVE”

As you, the faithful reader, already know, the Multnomah University sign had the letters "LOVE" stolen out of it.

"LOVE" Is Back

Campus Services got the sign repaired just in time for graduation last week - so now the "love" is back in MU.


Love Is Also Expensive

Have you ever heard the song "Can't Buy Me Love" by Paul McCartney? Well, apparently, sometimes you can "buy me love" - for about $486.00. That's how much it cost to replace four letters on that sign - wow! I feel like we should take up a "love offering" for this (would that mean that felony theft is now tax deductible? I digress).

After following up with security and checking with my "student informants", we are still no closer to solving the "Caper of Lost Love"...however, rumors are floating that it was one of 2 possibilities:

  1. A senior prank?
  2. A metal thief who was very disappointed to find out the letters are actually vinyl?

We'll likely never know.

Where Is The Love?

Someone has absconded with the letters "L", "O", "V", and "E" from the "Multnomah University" sign on Glisan Street!


Honestly, who steals letters?

Some possible theories from around campus:

  • Since the "pink mist" (that means that engagements and love is in the air with students) is floating in spring, perhaps someone is trying to propose or otherwise proclaim their love with the golden letters of "love"?
  • Maybe it is tennis players from nearby Montavilla Park since "love" means "nothing" to them!
  • Maybe there is something malicious afoot where someone is trying to make a statement about no "love" in MU?
  • Perhaps our Advancement department is holding an elaborate fundraiser where "love" is being held hostage and only one letter at a time will be released as ransom is paid?
  • Maybe I couldn't think of anything better to blog about so I trooped out in the rain, in my suit, with an expensive camera, and staged it for giggles? (Nope. Campus Services would be ticked!)

Well, honestly, we don't know what happened or why. Maybe the letters will resurface? Probably not.

Oh well...any ideas? Anyone?
