The Most Diverse Race

The Great Eclipse at GC: We Missed It

“The Eclipse of America” was heard repeatedly by excited GC students on the oncoming weeks before the day of Aug. 21, 2017.

Faith and Facts

                (clipartfox.com) Many Christians approach secular journalism with trepidation. After all, many Christians associate secular journalism with hatefulness, untruthfulness, and biased reporting; although these sentiments have existed for decades, the election has made them more noticeable. Furthermore, because religious publications publish most Christian journalism, little information about the true relationship between Christian journalists and the secular media exists. However, my personal experiences may “shed some light” upon … Continue reading Faith and Facts

Just a Typical Stereotype

Okay I admit… I buy pumpkin spice Frappuccino’s and love Starbucks. Yes, I like their frozen non coffee drinks.
