Stand at the crossroads and look;
    ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
    and you will find rest for your souls.  — Jeremiah 6:16, NIV


We take time to stand and look for enduring ways to walk in an ever-changing world. We search out ancient paths that lead to wisdom. We tread lanes of human knowledge acquired through thoughtful reflection and research. We see the human desire for understanding and spiritual insight as an invitation to intimacy with the triune God.
As a center for Christian study and practice at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we exist at the crossroads of intellectual inquiry, spiritual growth, and civic engagement. We are uniquely positioned to interact with educators, scholars, artists, theologians, innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs. Grateful for and mindful of our unique community, diverse callings, spiritual needs, and infinite God, we journey along six pathways.
