BhamCru Hosts Couch Talks on the Green
Free donuts and a comfy couch to sit on while enjoying the wonderful weather on Tuesday, what more could any student ask for? There is just one catch. To get a free donut, you have to answer a question.
These questions ranged from “what is love,” to “what do you believe about the supernatural?” The purpose of this event was “to allow students a chance to connect through deep spiritual and intellectual conversations, to help Cru students and staff understand the spiritual beliefs of UAB students, and to love on the students of UAB with free donuts,” said Elizabeth Rogers, a staff member with BhamCru.
Cru’s vision is to give everyone an opportunity to respond to the Gospel. To do this, Cru is recognized as a Christian outreach. Tuesday’s event was a prime example of their goal. Elizabeth feels that Couch Talks accomplished the vision and goal of Cru.
Over 200 students were engaged in conversations concerning their world beliefs, their purpose, and their thoughts on religion. One of the values of Cru is to understand and listen to the belief of those on the campus that they are serving. Many of the students had never heard of the organization before. More events of this nature are in the works for BhamCru. Throughout the week, students through Cru go onto the campus looking to engage their peers in similar conversations.
BhamCru meets collectively once a week on Tuesday nights at 8:30 and lasts typically just over an hour. They meet in Chemistry 101, the lecture hall on the first floor of the building.
