hen people find out I am a college campus minister they sometimes say, “Your job must be difficult with so many students loosing their faith in college.” The comment always calls to mind something a priest told me once. “I’ve never met anyone who lost their faith in college,” he said, “but I’ve met lots of people who lost their faith growing up at home and college was the first time they had to exercise that option.”
It’s true. If you are a faithful student embarking on your college career, you don’t need to worry about “loosing” your faith, as if it might get misplaced or stolen away from you. You just have to be faithful. But what does that mean...?
