Campus Christians face hardships

Washington Square News - Christians face hardships: "The round-faced, faux-hawked Australian is the pastor of a church called “Origins” that’s just starting out in the basement of a bar on the Upper East Side, and this night he’s the guest speaker at the weekly meeting of Campus Crusade for Christ, or “Cru.” After praises are sung and prayers are said, Tyson encourages everyone to think of a picture that describes his or her own life. Tyson’s is a famous 16-year-old picture of a lone man with a bag in his hand staring down a line of tanks while a crowd of protesters stands aside in China’s Tiananmen Square.

If ever there were a metaphor for being an evangelical Christian at NYU, said Cru President Ted Sangalis, this picture is it."
