Clocktower11-2-2001 SPU  This time it’s a little too close to home! No, I don’t live in Seattle or even anywhere near Washington. I don’t know any of the people involved. But I know about Seattle Pacific University. This picture shows the Bell Tower.  I’ve only been there to visit. It’s a great Christian university.  I’ve known both faculty members and students in years past.    What the news didn’t say is that Seattle Pacific University is a Free Methodist Church University.

I’ve been Free Methodist since I was about two years old. The Free Methodist Church is evangelical, thus the university is evangelical. Satan is no respecter of persons, of church denominations, of Christians, of non-Christians. But he will not defeat us. God is in control, even when it doesn’t look like it! I praise God.
