A gray sky and thin veil of rain greeted more than 180 Multnomah University students as they left campus to participate in Day of Outreach on September 24.

Once every spring and fall, students volunteer at several locations in the Portland community in need of their time and energy. A volunteer site can be anywhere: a nonprofit organization, a nursing home, a school, a community center. MU cancels classes for the day so students can devote their whole morning to service.

‘I just felt God wanted me here’

One student is a commuter majoring in business administration. Another is a guitarist who wants to make the most of his musical gifts. Still another is an aspiring missionary pilot who plans to focus on aviation technology.

Our freshmen are here for a lot of different reasons, but they all have one thing in common: an unshakeable faith in God. And they arrived on campus August 22 for a four-day orientation program that spoke to the heart of the Multnomah community. Read the rest of this entry »

What Is Lectio Divina?

Lectio Divina Chapels at Multnomah are, simply, times of focused and prayerful attention to short passages of scripture.  This is done in small groups of 4 to 6. The point is to slow down, to sit quietly, and to consider God’s Word, praying for insight and a willing spirit to hear and obey.  Repeated readings of the short passage and prayerful consideration of the text give students an opportunity for prolonged exposure to a passage of scripture, placing themselves under the authority of God’s Word and to consider God’s will for their lives that day.

Reflecting the Light of Christ

Reflecting the Light of Christ

Light in a Dark Place

"Have you ever been in a very dark space... [where] you couldn't see anything?"

Multnomah's president Dr. Dan Lockwood began his spring 2012 Convocation Chapel address with a story about a trip to New Zealand with his daughter, Elise. Preparing for a black-water rafting excursion, Dr. Lockwood and Elise donned wetsuits, climbing harnesses, and headlamps. Then they proceeded to climb down a 150-foot shaft to a steep tunnel that led to an underground river where a rubber raft awaited them. After traveling a half mile down the river, their guide told them to turn off the headlamps.

Listen to the spring 2012 Convocation Chapel. Read the rest of this entry »
