Reading Circles for Spring 2018

00.pngFaculty and staff are now invited to register for next semester’s reading circles. This spring we will discuss James K. A. Smith’s You Are What You Love (read the Artistic Theologian’s review here). Circles will meet biweekly at the following days and times (to be finalized/altered by the members of each group, based on teaching and committee schedules):

  • Tuesdays, 8:15-9:15
  • Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00
  • Thursdays, 12:00-1:00

If you’d like to take part, please email your preference(s) of day/time to JAmundson@JudsonU.edu by December 1. (For the seven specific meeting dates, please follow this link.) If you are among the first on the list, she will deliver a book to you before Christmas Break!

upcoming prayer service for faculty & staff

JU faculty & staff, please mark your calendars and join your colleagues for a service of prayer and lament on Friday, November 3 in the (new) Reed Room in Lindner Tower. The service will start at 10:10 AM and conclude before 11:00 AM. We will gather to offer in worship some of the anxiety and pain that we have felt across our campus in recent months through song, guided prayer, and silent reflection led by Mark Torgerson and Warren Anderson.
