Last week we had a powerful discussion about how some of us honestly feel about being students or staff on campus.  Each of us has  significant life challenges besides just studying or doing our jobs.

This week we’ll catch up on how everyone is doing with the latest barrage of campus and world events.

What have been some of your challenges this week?  Have you been impacted by the “Me too” movement?

What are some positive, tangible ways we can be supportive of each other? Others on campus?

How can we help to create a campus climate where everyone truly feels welcome and valued?

How can our faith or secular core values help us to take actions to bring people together to heal divisions and conflict? Inspire us to live lives of encouragement and hope?

Friends and roommates always welcome!  : )

Hope to see you soon.

On Wednesday, we have our Power of Purpose lunch discussion. It is at noon in the Pyon Su room in stamp, This discussion is a great place if you have questions about your career goals or about your faith. This interfaith space is also an opportunity for a FREE LUNCH!

On Thursday, there is an Interfaith Prayer Vigil for DACA and Dreamers that UCM is participating in at 6pm in Memorial Chapel.

Finally, this Saturday is our day-retreat to The Porch in Lucketts. We will spend the morning having faith-based discussions about purpose with Gary Mears, who is leading this new worshipping community before an afternoon of SERVICE.

Each Wednesday, starting tomorrow, at noon in the Pyon Su Room in the Stamp Student Union, L3 will host a discussion group called The Power of Purpose.

So what does this mean for you?

Lunch is free : )  And friends and roommates always welcome.
 
Come for an engaging interfaith/secular dialogue.  Our discussions focus on how faith/spiritual or core values can help you with your academic or career choices to create a purpose filled life; one that you are passionate about; one that reflects what matters most to YOU!  Power of Purpose is designed to bring diverse students together in an environment where all voices are valued and respected, and heard.
Power of Purpose is also a great place to meet new people, DE-STRESS and receive encouragement for small and big challenges.

Sunday Night Preview

As UMD students officially move back to College Park this week, the University of Maryland is having #FallWelcome, full of fun events and an especially great time for new students to get to know their campus better. Note however, that no welcome weekend (or any weekend) is complete without worship or sabbath time. To that end, United Campus Ministry will be hosting Sunday evenings in Memorial Chapel at 6pm.

This Sunday, we will begin with an ice cream social, some icebreakers, and time to check in about summer, about move-in, and most importantly recent world events that certainly effect students. Every week, we take this time to check in, to have fellowship together.

We also have worship. This week, our worship theme is new beginnings. We will also be serving communion. Cant wait to see all of you there!
