art & design: jim lepage and word

November 1, 2010

Jim LePage decided to combine his desire to read the Bible more with his love for design, which led to the birth of his series Word. As LePage writes on the project’s homepage:

Word is a series where I create original designs for each book of the Bible. Before each design, I spend time researching the book, finding out the themes, historical context, weirdest stories, etc. Read more…

god & life: debra li is spreading the love

October 31, 2010

Debra Li, a junior at Tufts, has started a year long project asking people to please fill in the blank: I love Jesus because ______.  One portrait a day for 365 days.

Li, above, a self-professed Flickr junkie and lover of colored post-its, was inspired by the project The Truth Is… to finally get her own project started:

I have always, always wanted to do a 365 project to push myself. It’s so easy to go through periods of times with a lot of photography and then periods where I don’t even touch my camera. Recently I saw this person’s [The Truth Is…] project and it made me think of what is true in my life Read more…

Depth This Sunday!

January 28, 2010

This Sunday after Crossroads:

New Topics, Same Pursuit of Christ

Having laid a basic foundation for a personal pursuit of God this fall, we’re continuing this spring with Depth, Citylife’s student discipleship initiative.  If you’ve ever wondered how to make real sense of scripture, how to enable it to direct, even enliven you, if you’ve wondered how the promises of a faithful God can be received and enacted with hope and confidence, then join us as we attempt to answer these and other questions.  Our aim is simple: to present the historic truths of Christianity in a manner that is palatable, relevant, and transformative so that individuals and campuses are changed for the glory of God.

Does the gospel really change things? Real things, things that matter to me?  We’ll explore this question by examining topics including status, performance, pressures, stress, anxiety, worry, influence, leadership, and relationships.

When: Depth will be hosted on Sundays in the hour just after Crossroads.
January 31, February 21, March 7, 21, 28, April 18.

Single Serving Saucy Surprises

January 22, 2010

Although we tend to use The Crossroads blog for primarily “business” related content – events, news, articles, or photos —  from time to time we feel the need to update you on various miscellany and trivia that either is 1) completely unnecessary to know, 2) related to our Crossroads family, or 3) relatively entertaining. Based on this rubric, I came to the conclusion that this piece of news fits all three. Read more…
