    Student Gathering: Put Flesh on It

    6:30 PM-7:30 PM
    May 11, 2022

    A monthly gathering for students who want to share ideas they have for ministry and service. These should be half-baked ideas, visions, and musings. This is the space for entrepreneurial thinkers. We will use an innovation technique to create a vibrant landscape for your ideas to marinate and take shape. This is for seminarians who think outside the box and see risk taking in ministry as an opportunity.

    See this week’s Monday Morning for the Zoom meeting link. Contact Karen Hutt, Vice President for Student and Community Engagement, with questions.

    Lecture: Justin Sabia-Tanis, Justice & Joy

    7:30 PM
    May 19, 2022

    Justice & Joy: Social Transformation as Spiritual Practice
    Justin Sabia-Tanis, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics and Social Transformation Supported by The McVay Endowment and Program Director for Social Transformation

    Our sacred traditions set before us visions of a just and peaceful future—a world it is increasingly urgent to create if we are to survive. This lecture will consider how viewing our work for social justice as a practice of faith can lead us to greater spiritual depth and meaning in our lives and how our spirituality sustains us to engage in long term, effective, and meaningful work for justice. We will look at why faith calls us to do the work of transformation and how this leads to both justice and joy.
