Scholarly Research Through the Lens of a Christian Worldview

As the third annual Faith and Learning Symposium approaches Friday, April 9, in the Pitch Room of the Learning Center on the campus of Missouri Baptist University, an important question arises. Why do we need faith integrated into academic and scholarly endeavors at a university in 2021? This is the question we are asking faculty members, presenters and organizers of this year’s symposium.

PHOTO GALLERY: COVID-19 Levels Significant Impact on Sports

While COVID-19 has been a major issue worldwide for over a year now, the burden it has placed on sports is hard to put into words. Whether it is athletics in junior high, high school, college or professional sports, COVID-19 has ruined countless games, seasons and careers. No one likes it, or thinks it’s fun, but in order to keep people safe and healthy the precautions that are being taken are helpful, as illustrated in this Photo Gallery spotlighting MBU volleyball during the pandemic.

The MBU women’s volleyball team plays a full-team scrimmage at practice recently in the Sports and Recreation Complex gymnasium. After temperature checks and COVID-19 tests, athletes are carrying on as close to normal as possible during this unprecedented pandemic.

A Senior Perspective on Graduation and the Future

Graduation will be here before we know it, and countless thoughts are going through the minds of seniors, concerns about the future finding a place alongside thoughts of wonderful memories made in college.


The longstanding tradition of Commencement is not only a day of historic significance in the life of every university, but more importantly a day of significance in the life of each graduating student who walks across that stage and collects a diploma. It is an ending and a beginning, thus the word, “commencement.”       Photo Courtesy of MBU Communications

Ruth Ezell currently works for Nine Network of Public Media, and has also worked for KSDK, among other media outlets. It is nearly impossible to talk about St. Louis broadcasting without mentioning Ezell’s name.      Photo courtesy of James Kyle
