It’s that time of year again. Students are returning to colleges across the nation, including a new freshman class. Which means it’s time for the annual college freshman Mindset List from Beloit College; always a cultural eye-opener in terms of changing times.

The Stagnant Soul

As Christ followers, we are called to love the Lord with our souls. The essence of the word soul can be found in its root, which literally means "to breathe."
