With the start of the fall semester, the Cairn University community draws on a new passage for “One Scripture, One University.” This is an initiative where the Cairn community focuses on one passage of Scripture, creating a climate for spiritual growth both on- and off-campus. The passage for this academic year is Colossians 1:15–17, with special emphasis on verse 17.
|“[The Son] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
The University has long emphasized Christ and His Word as two central themes of a Cairn education. The Spiritual Life Committee implements One Scripture, One University with the belief that God uses His Word to transform people into the image of His Son Jesus. Focusing on one Scripture passage together will provide a central point from which all other University initiatives can flow.
Through consistent communication of this scripture in classrooms, chapel, and social media, the Spiritual Life Committee prays the Spirit will lead individuals to initiate their own conversations and reflections on this passage.
