Paul Asimow, the Ge 1 professor, and Francis Su, a visiting professor from Harvey Mudd (also President of the Mathematical Association of America), will be speaking next week on what gives their life meaning (:
This is hosted by the Veritas Forum, an organization that seeks to make space for these sorts of questions and thoughts. Perhaps classes and extracurriculars and SURF/internship applications can make you so busy that you don't have time to remember why you do them in the first place. Hopefully this talk can give you a chance to think about what you find meaningful and to talk about it with others. You don't have to come with answers, and you certainly don't have to leave with answers, either. Let's just take some time to wonder.
Liked the songs from prayer and praise night? Here are a few youtube links so you can keep jamming!
Be Like Him:
How Great is Our God:
There's a lot going on in the country and in the world, lots of hate. Let us pray for and love those around us as Jesus loves them. What might that look like?
Love the flyers for the upcoming Veritas forum!
The event is coming up--mark your calendars for the evening of Wednesday, 2/15.
Ge 1 professor Paul Asimow and visiting professor Francis Su will be sharing what gives them meaning in their work, in life, etc....
See you there!

Last night, we discussed the next of the ten commandments. We read Exodus 20:7 and also looked at the reiteration of the ten commandments in Deuteronomy.
You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
Exodus 20:7 NIV
This commandment can be surprising. What does it mean to misuse God's name? Which name? Does this include swearing in general?
Perhaps part of it is calling someone else by God's name. Perhaps it means not out of reverence. What about when we get frustrated? What should we do? What if our friends are misusing God's name? What should we do? Does God need us to defend him? Should we anyway?
Comment or message us if you want notes or a summary. It was great to see everyone! Praying for you all continually (:
