Feb 10: Community Day
The entire Columbia Theological Seminary community will gather for our third Community Day. The goal of the day is to join together in hopes of becoming more like the beloved community of Jesus Christ. The day is being planned and led by your Community Life and Discrimination & Inclusiveness committee. Email your form to Judy Graves to RSVP and order lunch.
President Leanne Van Dyk is inviting the entire campus to join her in a "Big Read." Students, staff, and faculty will be organized in smaller book clubs to discuss Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative. Just Mercy is "a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice." You may order your copy at the bookstore. Be sure to email Mary Lynn Darden to sign up for a group if you have not done so already. If you are a commuter who has not signed up for a group yet and need an online option, email Kathy Dawson.
