Harding University students help community, share faith in New York state

The Leader in Corning, N.Y. reports:

Corning, N.Y. — While other college students typically spend their spring breaks binge drinking in Myrtle Beach or Daytona Beach, a group of students from Harding University spent the week performing community service and spreading their Christian faith.

The Church of Christ in Horseheads is hosting a group of 11 students from the university this week. The students spent Wednesday at a furniture, clothing and household item giveaway in Elmira.

On Thursday the students helped Corning Meals on Wheels prepare approximately 110 traditional corned beef and cabbage meals.

    Granted this is a story from the Leader in Corning NY, it still makes me sad for them to start an article “While other college students typically spend their spring break binge drinking in Myrtle Beach or Daytona Beach…” Maybe the other college students they know do that, but not the college students I know and know of. Many of the college students in our church college group, mostly from Lipscomb University, spent their spring break building houses for the poor in Honduras, a tradition that has carried on for the last eight years. I know there are many groups from Lipscomb who spend their spring break on mission trips. Undoubtedly the same is true of students from other Christian and State colleges. There are many wonderful college students of Christian character, and I just hate to see all college students thrown in the same pot (or gutter).

    The reporter for this NY paper is speaking from his own experiences — he knows nothing about the habits of Christian college students. Having lived there, I know that his first line is absolutely true in his area. And, yes, I’m sure Lipscomb students do their part, too. Just enjoy the fact that this reporter noticed a difference!
