In this opening session of the annual Fall Faculty/Staff Conference, we welcomed Pastor Leonard Dow to engage themes of compassion. The theme comes from the phrase “serve with compassion” from the Eastern Mennonite University mission statement. Dow is pastor at Oxford Circle Mennonite Church in Philadelphia, PA. He graduated from EMU in 1987.
Faculty and Staff gather to begin the new year together with the annual Faculty/Staff Fall Conference. Provost Fred Kniss and emcee/Director of Athletics Dave King offer words of welcome and orientation to the theme “Serving with Compassion.” Ken J. Nafziger leads the opening time of worship together.
In this opening session of the annual Fall Faculty/Staff Conference, we welcomed Ted Swartz of Ted & Company to engage the theme, Creativity in the University, taken from various places in the Eastern Mennonite University mission statement. Ted is set to launch a new book, Laughter is Sacred Space next month.
