The Art of Manliness: A Christian Perspective

Written by Jonathan Barker | Media by Thomas Hajny One of my friends brought up the rhetorical question: What does it take to be a man? I answered, “A man has integrity.”   When the issue of manhood is brought up, I often think of the 2011 album Man Up by 116 Clique, a compilation album featuring Lecrae and members of his label, Reach Records. This 7-track Hip Hop album discusses different aspects of w ...

With Doors Wide Open: A Thank You Note

Written by Paige Farnworth  | Media by Thomas Hajny My arms ache under the weight of my stack of binders and books. I race across Scott Field to get to class, crazy hair flowing behind me, because I am running late.

Written by Jonathan Barker | Media by Thomas Hajny Welcome to October.

I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me…

Article and Media by Tyler Lamb. I think this song is more relatable now than it ever was. The weird thing is, we are so used to the feeling of "being watched" that we don't even recognize it anymore.

Why is it that ...

The History of GC: Should We Care?

Christian Films: Can They Be Good?

Media and Article by Tyler Lamb. Unfortunately, I can't name a single movie labeled as "Christian" that I've seen that is good. Actually, there are many Christian movies I've never seen after seeing the trailer.
