Cru Talks is a collection of talks given at Penn State Cru's weekly meetings and retreats. To listen to them live, join us on Thursday nights in Freeman Auditorium (HUB Movie Theater) at 7pm. This podcast is also available on Apple, Google, and Spotify podcasts.
"Biblical freedom is being released from condemnation in order to be transformed by the Spirit into the person you were created and long to be." Listen as Josh Himes kicks off our series on Romans Chapter 8 by speaking about Freedom in the Spirit.
How do we know how to escape the rip current of life and avoid being lost at sea? Listen as Dylan from The Traveling Team walks us through escaping the pull of the world and paints a picture of God's vision for our lives.
"If you just try hard enough, you can do anything you set your mind to." While our culture thrives on self-sufficiency, scripture tells us we need help living the Christian life. In his final talk, Drew Jackson describes how the Holy Spirit can work inside of you to produce fruit for the kingdom of God.
"Jesus called his disciples first and foremost to be with him." In this talk, Drew Jackson lays out what it looks like to live out of the spirit's power and he invites us to accept that power in our lives today.
"What if the picture of the gospel that is so often painted is not the whole picture?" We tend to wonder if the good news is good enough based on the brokenness we experience. In Drew Jackson's first talk, he responds to these questions by starting at the beginning of God's story.
We took a break this past week from our series on Ruth to listen to a student testimony. Brant Goings shared how our testimonies may not be the way we hoped, but they are still part of who God made us to be and they each paint part of the picture of God's character.
