Resilience Retreat 2017

Are you yearning to feel more grounded, capable, and confident?  We invite you to participate in an off-campus, all-expense paid, interfaith weekend retreat from October 6-8 to help you enjoy increased resiliency by discovering and cultivating your own inner strength and peace.  During this program, we will discuss key components of resilience, identify individual areas of strength and potential growth, learn specific tools and practices that can help us become more resilient, and reflect on the role of our faith/spirituality.  Space is limited!  For more information, please contact Rev. Tracy Mehr-Muska from the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life at tmehrmuska@wesleyan.edu.  To register, please fill out this form prior to 5pm on September 15https://goo.gl/forms/dQ7ERXw6CUjXhPzC3.

The Interfaith Council is Looking for New Members

The Interfaith council is currently seeking multiple students to serve on the council board, starting Fall 2017. Preference will be given to freshman, who can begin serving from their sophomore year through their senior year.

Students from all religious or spiritual backgrounds that seek to participate in the Interfaith Council are welcome to apply.

APPLICATION IS DUE 4/19

The Interfaith Council seeks to promote greater inter-religious awareness and understanding, cooperation and community at Wesleyan among the diverse religious and spiritual groups and individuals on campus.  We seek to accomplish this through relationships and programming designed to encourage interfaith experiences of spiritual growth, ethical reflection, interfaith and intercultural dialogue, community service, and social action. The members of the Interfaith Council recognize religious diversity as a gift to be embraced rather than a challenge to be feared or avoided, an attempt to form coalitions without erasure.

Join Unity–GLBTQ and Christian Group Tonite at 8pm

Are you queer/trans and Christian? Join Unity, a new student group on campus, for our first meeting this Thursday, October 6th, at 8pm in Usdan 136! We are a group of questioning and curious queer/trans Christians that gather over dessert to build community and share about the joys, questions, and difficulties we live as queer/trans Christians. Our first meeting will be an information session, so feel free to drop by if you want to get a sense of what the group will be like. Membership in this group will be confidential and is specifically for students who identify as LGBTQ or questioning.  If you are interested and can’t make it to this first gathering, please reach out to Jenny to learn more about when/where future meetings will take place at Jennifer.peek@yale.edu.
