L3: Power of Purpose

Hello Everyone,

Hope your week is off to a good start.

L3 is having a meeting 2/17, Wednesday in the Nanticoke Room (Student Union) 1 – 2 p.m. for lunch to continue the conversation we started last week about finding our unique career paths and life callings; the power of purpose in our lives.

We’ll start off brainstorming about the power of community, how we can best support each other.

And then take some time for an individual reflection exercise, before we dive into dialogue both in small groups and the larger group.

Per feedback, we will work at having our conversation go deeper this time, especially concerning what major questions/concerns people have about their future (s).

Hope you can join us! Friends and roommates welcome : )

Lunch is included and FREE!

Our Wednesday dialogues bring students together from different spiritual/religious and secular backgrounds.
