Portraits of Hope and Change

Crossroads Table of Contents

by Paul Souder

At the intersection of your life's calling and the changes you aspire to see—in that space is a wealth of inspiring stories. If you want to know how Eastern Mennonite University is a force for postive change in our world, go to that space and listen.

And when the story of a true calling matches a life lived with courage and integrity—where the change and the life are one—listen even closer. Listen for the wisdom born of struggle. Listen for the patience born of hope. Listen for the voice of Christ. Listen. Learn. Change. Be.
