In April, noted Christian author and pastor Max Lucado was a guest speaker in Chapel. (Watch video from that and other Chapel services here.) Lucado spoke on the most well-known verse in the Bible, John 3:16, elaborating to the students and others in attendance on the beauty of God’s openness to all who will receive Him.
Chapel has been a fixture at Baylor since the University was founded in 1845, and its focus on worship and teaching is one of the clearest examples of the school’s Christian heritage. (Check out this feature from the new issue of Baylor Magazine for more on how Chapel fits into Baylor’s efforts towards helping students develop spiritually.) I didn’t fully appreciate Chapel while I was a student, but I’m so grateful now for the many ways — like Chapel — that Baylor so intentionally helps students explore their faith.
Sic ’em, Chapel programmers!
