The Faith & Scholarship Discussion Series is part of a vision for Hope College as a community of faithful Christian scholars. In order to build this, we—faculty, staff, and students—need to meet with one another in fellowship to discuss how the breadth of meaning inherent in terms like “faith” and “scholarship” creates a depth of their possible integration. We are not chairing the discussion of faith, scholarship, and vocation here at Hope College—no one is. The point is neither to impose a particular view nor to require anyone to learn, teach, research, or serve a certain way. If there is a reason for the discussion, it is to help build a community of Christian scholars faithful to the mission of integrating the life of the mind and of the spirit, a community whose members are comfortably vulnerable about how they define and live out these terms and their relationship to one another, and a community that enacts and models the virtues of civil discourse for all to see.
