King's alumnus published by the Wall Street Journal

NEW YORK, July 1, 2009—As students graduate from The King’s College, they aim to fulfill the mission of influencing the strategic national institutions of our world. Alumnus David Lapp (‘09) has begun to do just that.
Lapp wrote an opinion piece defending the institution of marriage, which was published in the Wall Street Journal. Entitled “For Better or for Worse: When Marriage Vows Get Creative,” the article argues that couples should use traditional wedding vows, rather than writing their own. He reasons that the act of marriage—which involves the individuals and the greater community—is sacred. As he writes, “Acts of this magnitude warrant precise and time-tested words.”
Lapp currently works as a research assistant at the Institute for American Values in New York City. He married fellow alumna Amber (Rumelhart) Lapp (’09) last month, using the vows from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.
The King’s College, committed to Jesus, true ideas and the Bible, is located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
