Blame. Hatred. Lament. Ignorance. Shame. Defense. It might just seem like
stories of the past, but the struggle for history brings out deep feelings,

My impression of Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo was a college trying to
keep its identity as a Christian college on a growing campus with increasing
diversity. They seem to be doing a good job of balancing and finding
integrity in the shifting realities, and they're not the only Christian
higher education institutes to be dealing with this question of identity.
