David Edwards Speaks at UConnect at UC


Williamsburg, Ky.— On March 25th, University of the Cumberlands (UC) presented David Edwards (Oklahoma City, OK.), to speak as a part of UConnect, a two-night convocation program, which was held in the Gatliff Chapel on UC’s campus.

The services opened with student-led worship and prayer by Edwards. He spoke about the importance of making solid foundations in all types of relationships, especially while in college. Edwards also attempted to answer why relationships are filled with drama and tension. He used the fall, which can be found in Genesis chapters 2 and 3, to explain why relationships can be so stressful at times. We have a natural sense of longing to avoid being alone in life, and from that, Edwards told the audience to reject counterfeit and seek truth above all else.

“Longing is meant to be the center of our lives,” explained Edwards. “It wasn’t meant for us to find that longing on our own terms; it is on God’s terms. Real love doesn’t run. Real love covers, it doesn’t expose.”

Upon ending his message, Edwards invited students to receive Christ as their Savior through a personal prayer of repentance, recognition, and acceptance.
