Personal Philosophy

"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might."

-Deuteronomy 6:5, NASB

Drawn from this biblical admonition--and in the context of this collegiate community of faith--the open-ended development of one's mind (including unanswerable questions and "unfinished agendas") is a genuine form of worship, integrated to practical life concerns rather than a compartmentalizing of faith.
