The Wackerlin Center hosts ‘Believe, Serve, Lead’ series every Tuesday

Posted by on September 4, 2012

What do you build your life around? In our fast-paced, diverse and demanding world, finding some solid ground can be bewildering. Students looking to discuss the things that matter most in their life, can join others every Tuesday at The Wackerlin Center for the ‘Believe, Serve, Lead’ series.

‘Believe, Serve, Lead’ is an opportunity for students to gather in a relaxed, inclusive and informal setting to reflect on the questions and experiences that shape their lives’ meaning and purpose.

“Focusing on a range of topics — global issues, spirituality, democracy, service, character and identity — we will explore what we want our lives to amount to, and how we want to engage with the life of the world,” said Jonathan Dean, University Chaplain and Director of Campus Ministry. “We hope to discover the gifts we each have to offer, and how together we can make a real difference.”

All are welcome, and all perspectives are valued. Food will be provided.

Every Tuesday from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
The Wackerlin Center
430 S. Evanslawn Ave. (south of Vago Field)
