Join UCM & L3 for the following programs:

Tuesday, April 2 @ 7:30pm: Kick-Off & Prayer Vigil for Refugees:Join us in the Memorial Chapel Garden of Reflection and Remembrance for Interfaith prayers and reflections on the plight of refugees in the world. We will also discuss the purpose and practice of fasting and how it is often observed in diverse religious practices.

Break the Fast on Wednesday night with friends and community members. You may join the Catholic Student Center for their dinner and mass at 5:30pm. We ask that you take note of the money you may have saved on meals from fasting, so that you can donate this to organizations that serve refugees around the world. We will be tweeting donation links all day.

Compassion – A Spiritual Technology?

Hope you had an awesome spring break!

L3 is back this Wednesday, 3/27 11 am – 1 pm, Nanticoke Room, Stamp Union.

We will view a few minutes of a Krista Tippett TedTalk and chat about

Compassion – A Spiritual Technology?

Do you agree with Krista’s quote below?:

“I will paraphrase Einstein. . .and say that humanity, the future of humanity, needs this technology (compassion) as much as it needs all the others that have now connected us and set before us the terrifying and wondrous possibility of actually becoming one human race.”

What is compassion?  Where have you experienced it on campus? Or not?When have you given or received compassion recently? Does compassion have a role to play in scientific endeavors? Is compassion something you are called to based on your spiritual, faith or secular core values?

This topic is part of our L3 continuing semester series Creating Unity in an Age of Polarization.

Hope you can join us for lunch.  Come and go as needed, and bring/invite your friends! Looking forward to seeing you soon.  : )
