Join a movement of the Spirit with worship leaders and musicians leading a powerful, poetic, and visceral, service as part of the Carnival de Resistance. Tevyn East and Jay, of the The Psalters, have been leading similar services in their “Creation Groans Series” through the Alternative Seminary.
Summer CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) participants share their experiences and insights.
The entire campus community is invited to every chapel service on campus. Eastern Mennonite Seminary hosts chapel gatherings in Martin Chapel every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 11:00.
So what is this carnival thing? Sarah Thompson, Caleb Lange and Jessica Campbell, participants with Carnival de Resistance, offer some reflections and connections.
This week, as promised, Dave provides background information and rationale for why EMU does not fly the American flag or play the National Anthem before athletic events. He refers to the statement that President Swartzendruber has written on the issue as well as sharing some of his personal experiences having worked in Mennonite educational institutions during his career in athletics. Dave also shares an excerpt from the book Mind Gym that all freshmen are reading. The chapter he refers to deals with the issue of not getting playing time or “riding the pine”.
Every other May, a cross-cultural study group goes from Eastern Mennonite Seminary to Israel/Palestine. This chapel contains short stories and reflections from seven participants from May, 2013:
Meditations on people and places–Anita Laura Fonseca
Reconciling Palestinian/Western land awareness–Linda Matheny
Let the little children come unto me in Hebron–Kevin A. Clark
Refusing to be enemies–Dorothy Jean Weaver
Reflection on the Dead Sea: “Go in Peace”–LaDawn Knicely
Conversations with Sami–Drew Ensz
Hope in the midst of disorientation–Darlene Wilkins.
In this week’s “Inside Athletics” podcast, Dave and James give some impressions on the EMU teams after opening week, plus what we can expect of the Royals this weekend. Dave then digs into more discussions he has had from the Bridging the Gap class, which is required for all first-year athletes at EMU. This week’s focus deals with how much growth a student-athlete can expect during his or her college years.
