Sticky Fellowship

Like so many other RUF chapters across the country, RUF at Boston University will be promoting our organization to incoming freshmen and transfer students once school begins the week of Labor Day. BU has 500 + student clubs and organizations, so it is easy to imagine RUF’s voice getting lost in the noise. (This is the first time RUF has done freshmen outreach at BU.)

What I pray for (and would ask you to pray for) is that RUF would be a sticky fellowship. What I mean by that is that when we hand out free bottled water, a Koozie, or an icy popsicle in two weeks that something about that interaction would stick with the student—a friendly greeting, a conversation, a warm invitation to our first event. Pray that RUF will be a place where people find friends that stick, that share the generous love of God with each other, that have fun together.

RUF is about fellowship and building relationships with fellow students, but lots of other student clubs can claim that purpose. But RUF is also about fellowship with God. So, most importantly, we pray for RUF to be a fellowship where people can meet the “friend that sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).
