To paraphrase an old saying, “The way to a student’s heart is through his or her stomach.” UKirk needs you to help feed our undergraduate and graduate students and young adults, for both Sunday morning brunches and Tuesday evening dinners at Common Grounds. The meals need not be elaborate; plan on making enough for about 15 people. There are kitchen facilities available for cooking or just reheating. Feel free to stay and get to know our wonderful students! Please sign up here. Questions? Email or .
This past weekend, UKirk had a retreat at Wintergreen! We had a fantastic time relaxing by the fire, playing games, and going on a brisk hike.
Our focus throughout the semester has been learning more about God by learning more about ourselves. We have learned about the Ignatian Examen, explored the Enneagram, and unpacked the Invisible Knapsack of White Privilege. In our endeavor of learning more about ourselves, our core scripture is Psalm 139.
Psalm 139: 23-34
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts.
See if there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
