A winsome presence

I was very heartened by Diane Strzelecki’s March article about LCMS Lutherans at Harvard. My own time at Yale Divinity School confirmed a similar situation there: It, too, is “not the hotbed of pagan activity” that many believe it to be. LCMS students at Yale (there were five LCMS students in the divinity school alone while I was there) would benefit from similar efforts to organize a campus ministry in their midst—and the LCMS also benefits from such a winsome presence at the country’s most prestigious places of higher learning!


In this regard, I’m sure the old tradition would still hold true: Harvard may do it first, but Yale can do it better!
