Paul writes to the Corinthians, “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”
I love that verse and it is so true about the partnership between the California State University and churches like mine. The brilliance of CSU Chancellor Emeritus Charles Reed was that he realized the university alone could not reach all children, schools alone could not reach all children, parents alone could not reach all children and churches alone could not reach all children. Yet, we together as the CSU African American Initiative strive to become all things so that we might save our children from poverty, frustration and the worst curse of all – failure to achieve their potential.
