Today--Tuesday, December 3, 2013--we invite you to join Ratio Christi in giving Christian students a voice on campus that will resonate into eternity!
This year Ratio Christi is proud to be a part of a call to action during this Christmas season. We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving--when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday--and to encourage a movement of more, better, and smarter philanthropy.
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
and will praise your name
for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
that it surpasses your fame.
When I called, you answered me;
you greatly emboldened me.
May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord,
when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
for the glory of the Lord is great.
Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
though lofty, he sees them from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
with your right hand you save me.
The Lord will vindicate me;
your love, Lord, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.
See What God Has Done
In the last 2 1/2 years Ratio Christi has grown from 10 chapters to 120 chapters around the country. The demand for new chapters at universities around the country continues unabated. A National Field Director has just come on board to help direct the many needs on campus. In May of this year the International Division was launched to take the vision around the globe and a new International Director joined our team. Then, in August we began pilot programs of Ratio Christi College Prep to reach high school students. Already, before official launch, we have more interest than we can possibly keep up with.
Watch this video from November 4th, as Nabeel Qureshi (of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries), a former devout Muslim, describes his journey from Islam to Christianity and shares the evidence for the truth of Christianity. A question and answer session follows his talk.

Please join me in giving Christian students a voice on their campus that will resonate into eternity.
Imagine with me, two futures. One where the voice of Truth and reason is forever snuffed out on the college campus. The culture which results from the exodus of those deaf to the intellectual, philosophical and scientific reasons for following Christ will be dark and devoid of all hope.
Now imagine a future where the intellectual voice of Christ is heard on the college campus through the mouthpiece of articulate, persuasive, engaged Christian students who have been trained to give a reason for the hope that is within them. The culture which results will resonate with the hope and glory of Christ and ring in transformation.
Which future do you want to see? Do nothing and you will get the first. Become a Ratio Christi Booster and together we can pave the way for the second.

What’s coming up on the Deeper Waters Podcast? Let’s talk about it.
Today, we have a special show lined up for you. We’re pleased to announce that Jon Stewart is going to be joining us. He’s taking some time away from the Daily Show to….wait. What? It’s not that John Stewart! Good! I was thinking that sounded like an odd guest for a Christian apologetics show!
Reasonable Faith is pleased to announce that Stephen McAndrew, J.D. is the new Reasonable Faith National Chapters Director. He will be driving chapters strategy, support, and development. This is a very important area of our ministry and we are very excited to grow the chapters vision.
