Brianna Becker, Rest in Peace

Brianna Becker, a remarkable UT pre-law student and friend to many in the young conservative community in Austin, had her life cut short in a tragic accident on Friday. Urban Grounds recounts her life, including her conservative activism and her active Christian faith.

She touched many lives, but her life was Christ-centered. A favorite biblical verse of hers included in the Urban Grounds tribute was:

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God
so that at the proper time He may exalt you,
casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7
God has exalted her, but God's time is not our time. She was taken before the promise of her life could be fulfilled. As her friend Michele put it at Blue Dot Blues in a warm remembrance: We lost a Star, and Heavan gained a Saint. We know she passed the test.

There will be a Prayer Vigil for Briana Becker on Tuesday evening 7:30pm at the University Lutheran Center. See:

Downballot Radio will have a tribute radio show:
The Down Ballot Radio broadcast tomorrow will be a tribute to Brianna Becker, an outspoken activist not just for conservatism but also for student involvement in the political process, women’s empowerment, and her faith. We hope that we can come close to doing Brianna’s memory justice.

As a reminder, Down Ballot Radio will air at 8:30pm, Monday, on; or 91.7 FM .
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord,
And let perpetual Light shine upon them.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed
Through the mercy of God
Rest in peace.
