Campus Crusade for Christ, publisher of EPA-member publication Worldwide Challenge, announced that its organizational name within the United States will change to Cru over the next several months. The July 19 announcement was made to staff members during the organization’s U.S. staff conference in Fort Collins, Colo.
Cru, a shortened form of the word “Crusade,” has been used by local ministries on many campuses over the last decade. (The word "Crusade" is problematic, due to its historic meaning.) The organization also hopes to move away from the “Campus” identity since they now have ministries to many segments of society.
EPA's newest publication member is Comment Magazine, a daily online publication with a twice-yearly print edition. Published by the public policy think tank Cardus, Comment's purpose is to serve Christian leaders and culture makers with rooted, fresh ideas for the faithful practice of North American public life. Leaning on 2000 years of Christian thought," its purpose statement explains, "we seek a renewed social architecture. 'Not new wine into old wineskins, but old wine in new wineskins for festive drinking,'" in the words of Calvin Seerveld [Footprints in the Snow]. Welcome, Comment.
