The last number of months have been a busy time at Taylor and for our alumni.  As the body of Christ we've celebrated the birth of our Lord and rung in the New Year with the knowledge that in Christ all things are new.  Now we celebrate the season of Lent in preparation for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter.  So many of our alumni are working hard to spread the gospel.  This issue of the Online Bridge features a number of alumni who have heard God's call to service and responded in obedience and faith.

Scroll down to see the headlines for this issue.  Immediately below are links to regular features in the Online Bridge.

Taylor launches a new website

The staff, faculty, and students were invited this past January to an unveiling of the new Taylor Website.  Barbara North (outgoing Director of Communications) hosted the event during which Drs. Dewey, Williams, and Leverette showcased each of the new sections.  Since you’re reading this, presumably you’ve received your own taste of the new site, and we hope you’re already enjoying the look and feel.  Click here to read about the new site!

"I remember our Baccalaureate speaker saying, 'unless you've been called to go, you are called to stay.'  I thought 'OK, great, I am certain I haven't been called to go so I'll stay.'  I realize now that was the first step in the Lord really touching my heart for foreign missions service."  Pauline Bruhn learned that sometimes following God's call does not end up how one might expect.  In this article Pauline writes about the challenges and joys in her ministry to Ecuador.
