CAMPUS CHURCHES OFFER FREE MEALS, BIBLE STUDY
There are many opportunities for students to eat
free, and get a religious flavor, five times a week. The
Catholic Campus Community serves dinner at 6:30
p.m. every Monday with a Bible study at 7 p.m.
Lutheran Campus Ministries serves pizza at 12:30 p.m.
every Tuesday and dinner at 5 p.m. on Sunday nights.
The Baptist Student Ministries serves free lunch at
noon on Wednesdays. United Methodist Students
serves lunch at 11:30 a.m. every Thursday with a
devotion service at 12:30 p.m.
Be prepared, though: many of the "free" meals on
campus come attached to a devotional, prayer or other
spiritual exercise. But the groups mentioned open their
activities to all - including non-Christians - and tend
not to put visitors on the spot. For a list of other reli-
gious and spiritual campus organizations, visit

on a promise from God to
humanity that the planet is
destined toward world peace
and that we must endure tur-
moil in order to achieve unity.

thing that is going on today is
for the purpose of bringing
about something more glori-
ous," said David Parker,
Plainview senior and one of 30
members in the Denton Baha'i
Baha'is hold the belief that
conflicts should be resolved by
spiritual principles, not war.

message. He thinks that terror
is something people create in
their minds and can only be
eliminated with a spiritual
"America's proposal to get
rid of nuclear arms is not a solu-
tion," Johnson said. "Mankind
is so devious that [humanity]
will find other ways of creating
terror without arms."

"This is destroying the
notion that government and
religion should remain sepa-
rate," Rep. Barney Frank, D-
Mass., said Thursday.
But federal housing officials
say the proposal would elimi-
nate bias against religious
groups that offer social services
like homeless shelters and soup
kitchens. "We are just leveling
the playing field. This is part of
an overall effort to end discrim-
ination against faith-based
organizations," said Housing

Jan. 6 in the Federal Register,
