Our theologically diverse community of faith and discernment has a particular rhythm to it, too. We help one another on our spiritual journeys to a clearer sense of calling and vocation. Sometimes this happens in a formal way. Most often, it happens among a few students, sitting around and prayerfully discussing their struggles. Among the many places that this can and has happened, these are the settings that we provide for community fellowship. None are required, but all are uniquely valuable.
- We meet for a community meal and Theology & Vocation discussion twice a month at the Director’s house. This is a regular event in the Christian Ministry Program and one of the things that helps maintain unity among such diverse Christians.
- The office doors of our faculty are almost always wide open. We encourage lots of conversation between students and faculty. Ongoing student-to-faculty conversation about vocational discernment and theological reflection is a top priority for us!
- Among the many other times when our students have found fulfilling conversations, many of our students have enjoyed:
- Common Grounds – an ecumenical student-lead discussion of a weekly theological topic
- Women’s Group – an ecumenical women’s discussion group
- Friday Cookies – 3-5pm on Fridays – a purely social time for CM students and the occasional local clergy member
- Bible studies on campus
- One-on-one rotating student discussion partners
- Student get-togethers happening at wonderfully random times
