Engineering Auditorium Shakes!

Ramesh C. Reddy
Pittsburgh Standard


The engineering auditorium in Benedum Hall shaked on Sat, Sept 27 at 7:00 p.m. as more than 80 spectators watched. Yet, not one person moved away from the auditorium.

            Instead, they were mesmerized by the ‘Break and Pop Dance team w/ Brown Hornet’. They could not get enough because the audience wanted more and more.

           After the team performed rarely did people step away from the auditorium! Rather, they stepped up to the performance of the “Anointed Steps of Faith” step team. The step team performed to the scripture of John 3:16 which states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

            They were followed by three contestants for a karaoke contest worth $100.00.

            Anne Garland Neel, a Resident Assistant (RA) and member of Cornerstone 220, a college ministry for students won the contest when she performed to the song “Respect” by Aretha Franklin.       

            She received a standing ovation from the audience after her performance and was the audience’s choice to win the $100.00.

            She was excited to win the money but decided not to keep it.

            “It feels great. I am going to pray about where to give it to”, said Neel.

            After the contest was over, there was a brief intermission followed by live music with ‘Seeking Selah’

            Jennifer Caul, president of Chi Alpha ministries later addressed the audience.

            “Why are we here? The answer is JESUS CHRIST! My God and my Jesus say there is only one way”, said Caul.

            Caul later addressed the audience about two misconceptions of Christianity:

1.      Christianity and the Bible is a bunch of rules trying to hold us back.

2.      Church is a bunch of hyprocrites.

Caul asked the question of the audience, “Is true freedom going out and having sex with 5 million people or true freedom not to do that but keep yourself to one you want to marry?”

Caul also mentioned to the audience that the hypocrisy of the church does not take away from the life of Jesus Christ and what He could offer people turning to Him.

She ended her talk with an anecdote called ‘The Bridge’ to relate John 3:16 to the audience. In that anecdote she talked about a man and his son. The man would take his son to work while he worked in a railroad booth. He loved his son so much. The man heard a train coming and had to lower the bridge but saw his son get stuck on the tracks. He could save his son who he loved so much or save hundreds of people on the train who would die if the bridge was not lowered. He decided to lose his son to save hundreds of passengers.

            Caul wanted the audience to know that’s what God did for us when He allowed His son to be sacrificed for the sins of the world that we maybe saved.

            Before leaving the stage, she led the audience in a prayer of giving their lives to Christ which many of them repeated with her.

            The event called “Plugged” ended with the band “Seeking Selah” leading the audience in worship.
