Faculty & Staff Summer Brown Bag Discussion Series: Relational

Tuesday, June 20 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Graves Hall, Presidents Room 263 College Avenue, Holland, MI 49423-3646

The Hope community is strongly relational—we intentionally cultivate friendships and understand that we are called to live out our faith primarily in relation with one another, our shared work, our shared mission, all Creation, and the triune God. Furthermore, we value these relationships as ways we can best engage differences about the historic, ecumenical Christian faith and God’s call to us as individuals and as a community of faith. We propose that working at Hope College is an opportunity to create meaningful relationships with colleagues, students, and programs contextualized in part by a shared faith. Discussion questions include:

  • What professional, academic, and/or scholarly relationships have shaped your faith?
  • How has (or might) your work with colleagues at Hope contributed to growth in your faith?
  • to deepening and expanding your sense of vocation?
  • In the spirit of inviting all staff and faculty colleagues to a conversation about what it means for Hope College to be at its best as a community of faith, we invite you to join us for a series of brown bag lunches this summer. We'll discuss a proposal that we first put forward in Spring 2016, which is based on the following framework of characteristics—equal parts descriptive and aspirational:
     
    • Rooted
    • Intentional & Invitational
    • Vocational
    • Ecumenical
    • Relational

Next week is our last lunch:

  • June 27 (Presidents' Room, Graves Hall): River as a Metaphor
