As a college student, I always liked kicking my summers off with a good lie to myself. It would start each May just as finals were coming to a close. I would make big plans for my ideal summer full of rest.

Anyone else coming into Summer already feeling nervous about a Summer job, internship, or next school year? For me, entering into this Summer feels like entering into a new, nerve-wracking season.

Have you ever gotten super into something to the point where it affects your entire life? Like fantasy football, eating Keto, or that reality tv dating show you hate-watch with your friends? It’s to the point where everybody knows your obsession and you absolutely will be organizing your week or your budget around it.

As the days have been getting longer recently, I’m more aware this year than I have been in a while of the opportunities that summer brings to grow my relationship with God. Hear me out, I know I have time for that regardless of how much daylight we get. But in summer, my days just feel lighter.

This season on the podcast we’re talking all about leadership. Specifically, we’re talking about the issues that many Greeks face when they’re interested in spiritually leading within Greek life. This week, we have a couple of guests joining us in a conversation about anxiety and mental health.

Is it really almost 2022 already?? I don’t know about you, but this past year has felt like a blur- a blur that began all the way back in 2020. There’s been a near constant barrage of changing covid regulations, news stories that sadden and/or anger us, loss, and increasing political polarization. At the same time, God has continued to move in our lives collectively and individually.

Merry Christmas! After much anticipation, we finally made it to the big week, and there is much to celebrate. How are you feeling about your Christmas shopping this year? While the shopping and buildup can be stressful, gift exchanges can be a fun and meaningful experience at Christmas. In Matthew’s account of the Christmas story, three men are remembered for going well out of their way on a long journey to participate in a gift exchange with a… child.

This week on the podcast, Alison & guest host Becky talk with Gabe, Delta Upsilon from SDSU, and Sarah, Delta Gamma from Indiana State. They’re talking all about how to talk with your brothers/sisters about your faith and lifestyle decisions. They’re asking the question, how do I talk about my relationship with God and not make it weird?

While there is a lot of room to give practical advice in this area, we also know that this is commonly turned into an area of shame within Christian culture. There is no shortage of do’s and don’ts on this topic and we really love that this episode of the podcast is story-based, not a one-size-fits-all how-to. We hope it helps you consider your story and how you can invite God to be a part of it! Listen in as Mark, Depauw University & Delta Upsilon alumni, shares his story with us.

It’s a familiar question for most Greeks - how do I navigate the drinking culture in Greek life? Tori Castek, Greek IV staff and Purdue Kappa Alpha Theta alumna, joins us and shares what this looked like for her. Here are the basics - if you resonate with any of it, be sure to listen to the episode!

The question we’ve been asking in this part of the season is: Where is God in pledging and how should we approach it as Christians and followers of Jesus? This week on The Greek and Christian Podcast, we’re talking about hazing. We know this is a heavy topic, but we also know it’s an important one to talk about!

This week on The Greek and Christian Podcast we’re starting a segment all about God and Pledging. We know the pledging process is different for everyone. If you are just starting the pledging process - or will later this year - this is tailored to you. We hope this devotional helps you dive in a little deeper and think about what this story could mean for you.

What does all of this mean for us as we prepare to head back to campus though? How do we incorporate the things we’ve learned about our faith into our lives in our Greek chapters? How do we be Greek AND Christian?

Do you ever wake up and lack the motivation to work out? That is me most days! What about your relationship with God? Do you ever struggle with motivation to continue taking steps to grow? If so, you are not alone.

Raise your hand if you struggle with indecisiveness and the unknowns of the future... *** immediately raises both hands***…

I'm a worrier and I'm pretty sure I always have been. Growing up it was common for me to hear phrases like, "Josh, don't be such a worry wart" or "all you can do is your best, and let God handle the rest."

During Jesus' ministry, he heals a lot of people. You could randomly open to a page in any of the four gospels and find at least one story about how Jesus heals the blind, the lame, or the leper.

As 2019 was rapping up and 2020 began, my life felt like a series of punches to the gut.

Before you read on, close your eyes and take a deep breath. To help us understand our passage today, we’re going to start by stepping back in time to first century Jerusalem.

Let’s talk about family. Maybe you recently arrived home for the summer. Maybe you’ve been back home for a while. Or maybe you’re staying with friends who feel like family for the next couple months.
