The Chapel Sabbath Hour
The Office of Campus Ministry engages people of faith and those in search of faith to wrestle with the issues of justice in our time, to connect faith with the ethics by which they live, and to integrate the life of the faith with the life of the mind. The programs of this office are centered in spiritual meaning for all members of this university's community.
As a church related institution, we are committed to providing a rigorous learning environment of the whole mind, soul, body, and spirit. We do this, in part, by devoting the time period from 11:15-12:15 am each Thursday morning to a time of reflection and rest. This is a time when no meetings, classes, or labs are scheduled.
You are invited to gather in Samuelson Chapel for University Chapel on Thursdays at 11:25 am each week that the campus is open. University Chapel is a time of inspiration for the heart and spirit, a quiet harbor in a busy week, and a place to worship God. All are welcome!
There are many ways to honor this time of pause and rest. We offer this list of suggestions in the hopes that this gift of an hour of structured or unstructured rejuvenation from the University may enrich and sustain you for the work that is yours.
