In this message, Dean of Spiritual Development Dr. Todd Pickett speaks on the 2015-16 theme "ABOUND," taken from Paul's prayer that the Philippians "love may abound more and more with knowledge and all discernment." Such knowledge, Pickett says, is a knowledge and discernment, wisdom and understanding that is available to us only as we grow in love. How one educates love's knowledge at a Christian university is chiefly through worship, which must undergird and surround our learning if we are to gain love's knowledge through the Spirit's work in our lives.
