Chaplains’ Picks, Sept 16, 2019

Welcome new and returning students to campus! We are looking forward to building community, supporting each other, and spreading friendship in Jesus’ name. May God’s love and wisdom be with you as you study, work and play.

Thurs, Sept 19 – Student Christian Movement Another World Cafe
6:30 pm, Divinity Common Room – North, Trinity College, 6 Hoskin Ave.

“Another world is possible,” a common protest chant proclaims. Yet it can be hard to see. Many of us struggle with anxiety and despair about the state of the world. Christian faith, which should offer hope, is often used to justify the status quo. Join us as we help each other to grow into a liberating faith: a faith that celebrates the dignity of all and gives us courage to challenge injustice and oppression. We explore the stories that shape our worldviews – the stories of the Bible, of history, and of our own lives – and reflect critically on what we believe and how we put our faith into action. @ U of T every Thursday. Refreshments provided, including vegan and gluten-free options.
