Mind & Soul: How Baylor Fosters an Intellectual Community of Faith for Students
It's 10 p.m. on a Tuesday in November, and about seven Baylor University students are sitting quietly in the Robbins Chapel of Brooks Residential College. After a few minutes, a faculty member who lives in Brooks stands to lead the evening prayers. The worship service of prayers and psalms lasts only about ten minutes, but it's a welcome respite for those who gather. Held every weekday night at 10 and every weekday morning at 9, the short services are designed to create a spiritual rhythm to life and to offer an opportunity for quiet reflection and spiritual growth.

Fairness to history will place on a pedestal of praise President Rufus C. Burleson and William Carey Crane. The men laid foundations upon which others have built. They worked for the most part as teachers and preachers for promises that were never filled. They endured the hardships of the Civil War and those of the Reconstruction period. They lived in the hearts of their students. Their faults are now forgotten; their virtues will never die.

In short, we must not let failure of nerve or confusion about our vision stand in the way of what will serve Baylor's students now and for generations to come. Imperative II calls for a third major residential project. It is past time to act so as to make it a reality before 2012 arrives.
Five students. One bicycle. No money.
And a plan to bike from Waco to Anchorage in three months. This is a story of true friendship, of determination, of doing whatever it takes to encourage a friend that life is worth living.
