A keen imagination and a
creative bent often lead to breakthrough thinking, innovation and change. Join
us in celebrating the creative spirit in the arts, sciences, humanities and the
world of ideas. Members of the greater Olivet family are living at the corner
of imagination and innovation, making our world a better place every day.
As we enter into Holy Week, we once again encounter the risen Christ through these pages. Who is the Christ? Drs. Gary Henecke, David Van Heemst, and Kashama Mulamba offer unique perspectives on this question, and how Christ is at work in our every day lives.
One individual fully surrendered to God can challenge the status quo and change the course of history. Drs. Lynda Allen, Stephen Lowe, and Russ Bredholt, Jr. discuss what it will take for leaders to shape the great ideas, movements and organizations of the next century.
Given the vast mystery of the work of the Spirit and the limitations of our humanity, our minds often wander and wonder about the great spiritual and existential questions of life. In search of greater understanding, we turned to Rev. Corey Jones, Dr. Jeff Bell, and Dr. Darcel Brady for inspirational stories of the Holy Spirit and the human spirit.
As we gear up for the start of a new school year, we pause to ponder the implications of clear vision, journeying toward deeper levels of discovery, understanding and inspiration. Featuring articles from three resident visionaries: Dr. Jay Martinson, Dr. Kent Olney and Dr. Thalyta Louw Swanepoel.
Counting our blessings, we remember that gratitude is more than an occasional “thank you,” but a mindset that empowers and inspires our daily life. Featuring reflections from Dr. Carl Leth, Dr. Karen Dean Frye and Dr. Beth Patrick-Trippel, as well as a “State of the University” article by Dr. John C. Bowling.
In the midst of the dark, cold, often difficult days of winter, we turn our attention to finding joy, even in standard time and places. Featuring articles by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, Dr. Brian Parker and Dr. Dale Oswalt.
Hope. Some say it’s more difficult to find these days. But for the Olivet community, hope is that which guides our every decision and inspires our very existence. With so much wrong in the world, there is also so much right at Olivet — there is great hope for the future.
