Happy Easter, LeTourneau Nation!

The cry of a hurting world seems amplified this week. In every season of the year, hopelessness can be found in every workplace in every nation.

But at Easter, when the remedy to hopelessness is celebrated and new life is all around us, the need for a Savior is even more a burden on my heart.

So, I turn again to C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity:
"Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world.  There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise...something has evaded us...If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." 
Yes, indeed. We were created for another world and the Lamb of God was sacrificed to restore us with our Creator.

Let's allow God this Easter to again break our hearts for workplaces filled with the unfulfilled. And let's commit ourselves anew to the transforming work of Christian higher education at LETU.
