Campus Crusade for Christ changes its name

Ever since it was founded in 1951 this worldwide ministry has been known as "Campus Crusade for Christ"

But, no longer.

As of July 19, 2011 It has changed its name to Cru.

Cru ?  Cru ?

Yes, Cru.

No more Christ and no more Campus Crusade for Christ, but just simply 'Cru'.

There will probably be a zillion articles about this name change.  But one of the first to hit the wires is this one.  HERE'S THE LINK

And for another article about the name change, HERE'S THE LINK

And just between you, me, and the gatepost, and having been a long time supporter of Campus Crusade for Christ and its various ministries, especially "The Jesus Film" Ministry (I wonder if they will change that name too?), this makes me very sad!
