By Andrea Woods,

Staff Writer


The Christian Legal Society (CLS) is a student organization for students of all backgrounds and denominations who want to learn about Christ. Our meetings are held for weekday students on Fridays from 12-1 pm in Room 505. For weekend students, meetings are held on Saturdays from 12-1 pm in Room L12. Rooms are subject to change each term. CLS celebrates national prayer day by completing the Jericho Walk around WMU Cooley Law seven times while praying. We also host events like movie day to preview life changing Christian films. It is my sincere wish for you join CLS as we network and learn about the Lord. Please enjoy the following Words of Wisdom. May they help ease the burden that some of you might be experiencing right now.  



Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

CLS Bible Study

Even when I am tired and I still have to read, study, work, cook, and clean, I can do all of these things through Christ. Life can be so demanding even if we are organized and calendared persons. However, we have enough time in the day to do all we have to do. Even in the mundane things of life, we have to know we can do it. I can get out of the bed, get dressed, pack my bag, and go study although it’s cold outside and my bed is super cozy. I can study hard and ask questions to seek help when I don’t understand my material without feeling inadequate. I am in law school to learn and grow in wisdom.

“We are preparing to be ministers of justice.”- Thomas Brennan



Daniel 3:27

Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisors crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!

CLS Bible Study

God will protect us and rescue us from any situation that we face. All we have to do is have confidence in Him. Knowing that He can do anything except fail us is what we must realize for His glory to wash over us. He is able to help us with everything that we face in this life. He’s our hope and we have to continue to put our trust in Him even when we are faced with life and death situations. We always have choices daily and God always has the answer; all we have to do is pray and then after the answer comes just follow it through. Even when we are discouraged and sad, we have to remember God commanded us to be strong and very courageous and we can do just that, if we trust Him to give us the strength to do so.
