In the Christian tradition, the season of Lent is a 40-day period commemorating the events leading up to the death of Jesus Christ. Oftentimes, Lent is regarded as a time for sacred and meaningful reflection on our own spirituality and spiritual journeys. This Lenten season, join Dr. Sabia-Tanis and Dr. Chapman Lape for a Lenten Bible Study. We will communally engage in Christian theological reflection using resources such as A Women’s Lectionary for the Whole Church by Wilda C. Gafney as well as the “Liberation Bible Study” podcast curated by More Light Presbyterians. The Lenten Bible Study will meet both virtually and in-person from 4:45 PM-5:45 PM on Tuesdays beginning March 8 through April 12. All are welcome.
A casual drop in time to meet whoever comes, check in, meet other students over a morning beverage. No agenda, just meeting, greeting and words of encouragement. 8:45 – 9:45 AM CT every week.

The Interreligious Chaplaincy Program is hosting The Death Lounge! The Death Lounge is a virtual panel conversation with ministry professionals about death, dying, and the care practices that come along with end-of-life. The Death Lounge welcomes interaction, encompasses artistic expression, and is meant for both spiritual caregivers working with those at end-of-life and for community-members with questions about life-care planning and navigating final arrangements. You are invited to bring your questions and a comforting meal, and join us in this virtual lounge on April 1, 6:00 PM-8:00 PM CT on Zoom. Panelists include: Rev. Nikki Darlene Frontz, Rev. Lawrence T. Richardson, Rev. Michael Blackwood, Rev. Gina Harvey, and The Rev. Tory Moir.
