Campus Crusade for Christ Changes Name, Losing 'Crusade' and 'Christ'
From the article | "As far as the removal of the word "Christ," the ministry's website said, "Cru enables us to have discussions about Christ with people who might initially be turned off by a more overtly Christian name. We believe that our interaction and our communication with the world will be what ultimately honors and glorifies Christ."
What's next, taking "Christ" out of B.C. and Christmas? "Lord" out of A.D.?
I'm sure there are academic reasons or reasons that align with some church growth guru as to why we should tuck our loins between our legs and concede more ground.
Christ is the Light of the Campuses
Sounds fair and reasonable. You are being kind.

ESV John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
ESV John 3:19-20 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
