Students Engage in Discussion Forums

Students at Southwestern Christian University took part in an engaging Spiritual Emphasis Week allowing those a better understanding of a Christian’s response to some of the hot-button contemporary social issues they face.

Two evening discussion forums were held that allowed students to learn from a panel of experts on topics ranging from the legalizing of marijuana to racism, ethics and morality.

“We had a great response from our student body,” Vice President of Students Brad Davis said. “More than 125 students took part in the two events. These are the issues that students are faced with every day. The dialogue that was present between our panelists and our students was really informative. I’ve heard of lot of positive feedback from the event.”

In addition to the discussion forums, Pastor Al Bethea of the Flomatum Pentecostal Holiness Church Alabama was the guest speaker for both of the chapels.

Bethea’s message was about students walking in their own shoes. He called on students to be the person God has called them to be and not try to imitate someone else.

Spiritual Emphasis Week is a SCU long-standing tradition designed to minister to the needs of its students while encouraging them to live Spirit-filled lives. The week is a time where students are immersed in powerful classroom messages that encourage deep spiritual growth.
