Good News in Cuba

For all of my 60 years, Cuba has meant Communism, Fidel Castro, missiles, Olympic opponents and cigars. Though Cuba is only 103 miles from Florida, the island nation has always seemed to me to be the most foreign of foreign countries. The political distance between Cuba and the U.S. is why I was completely surprised when two of my colleagues, Ken Graves and Chuck Hicks, came to my office last spri ...

Research and Rigatoni

Written by Kaleb Turner | Photography by Grant Schol For nine science majors, summer 2017 turned out to be an unlikely combination of research and rigatoni. As part of the Summer Undergraduate Research in Florence program led by Dr. Dennis Matlock, associate professor of biochemistry and department chair, nine students spent four weeks at the Harding University in Florence campus and in laboratories at Meyer Children’s Hospital practicing hands-on biomedical research and experiencing Italian culture. Matlock said after a discussion with Dr. Jeff Hopper, dean of international programs, the idea for a biochemistry-based summer program seemed a natural fit for science students who felt they cou ...

Into all the world

Obeying Jesus’ command in Mark 16:15, missionaries immerse themselves among people who may speak, believe and live differently. They dedicate their lives to the people whom they wish to reach. They make a home in a place with which they are not familiar. They surround themselves with strangers for a time while they plant their seeds. They connect, and they “speak the gospel to all creation.” Dear Nepal, You have welcomed me and surprised me. You are a land of extremes. I remember coming here almost two years ago and taking that first ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara where I now live. I remember taking awe-struck photos and videos out of the windows of the bus, marveling at the amount of people ...

Called according to his purpose

In the midst of struggles, Harrison and Hayley Waldron choose joy. By Hayley Waldron |  Looking back, you might think our story started Aug. 14, 2015 — the day of the accident. But to really explain how the Lord prepared me for the life I live now, I have to go backward some: back to my childhood and the loving, supportive atmosphere my parents created for me; back to arriving at Harding and the blessing of interacting with peers and professors who were molding me and making me better; and back to when I met Harrison. Harrison and I both signed up to go to Harding University in Greece during spring 2013. I remember seeing him in the cafeteria, and I didn’t know who he was. I saw him and thou ...

Your Words: Fall 2017

What’s the best way for Christians to be a light to the world? Jesus and Paul both call us to be different in different ways. Paul calls us to renew our minds, and Jesus calls us in many of his parables to give away the extravagant love and grace of God. We have to be different to be a light. We have to interact with people in a different way but still keep in mind our calling throughout the centu ...
