CHRISTIAN FACULTY FORUM at UCSB

For over 30 years, Christian faculty at UCSB have been meeting regularly for discussion and prayer. For decades over 50 faculty members have published an annual Resurrection Proclamation in the Daily Nexus simply declaring their faith and trust that "He is Risen."

This year, rather than publishing the traditional Resurrection Proclamation, they will publicize the availability of valuable online resources on what is arguably the most important event in human history: the resurrection of Jesus.

FIND WISDOM IN THE WORD

"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. (Jesus in Matthew 6:31-34).
