Updates from Brown and RISD

We, in RUFBrownRISD, are clear of new student outreach and it's been one for the books. We have 80 people on average at Friday gatherings. We got back Sunday from the weekend's Fall Conference in New Hampshire. We brought over 60, had three freshmen small discussion groups, four upperclass groups, and 15 of our folks went paintballing!

Bradley Barnes, former minister for RUF at Harvard and now church planter in Massachussetts, spoke on Learning To Pray. The one freshmen small group I led was really grappling with the feeling, "I want to pray and I know I should, but how come I don't as much as I want?" We had great conversations about getting God rather than something from God. Now, student leaders and staff have more follow-up ahead of us. Please pray for us!
