My college alma mater, Union University, has been in the news lately for all the right reasons. They decided to pull out of the CCCU (Council for Christian Colleges and Universities) since two schools have recently decided to allow same-sex marriages among their faculty.

It is an interesting issue and illustrates well the struggle to be unified with other believers, while remaining faithful to biblical convitions. We will continue to face this struggle in the days ahead.
