The Penn Faculty-Staff Christian Forum

On March 2 we began giving out complimentary copies of Faculty Commons’ new publication at our meetings—A Grander Story: An Invitation to Christian Professors.  This encouraging 215 page volume is co-authored by Rick Hove (Faculty Commons Executive Director) and Heather Holleman (English faculty, Penn State University).

“This book reaches not just the head but also the heart, by weaving personal stories and biblical foundations together. It offers six stories from actual faculty members of the ways they seek to live out their callings to be flavorful grains of salt where God has placed them.” —Jeff Hardin, Chair of Zoology, University of Wisconsin-Madison. This complimentary book will be the basis for our discussion series on March 2, 16 and April 20. (Rein Family Room, #301 Houston Hall)

HIDDEN FIGURES–on April 13, we will host a Film Review and Discussion of this inspiring, untold story about a female trio of African American mathematicians who were so critical to the success of John Glenn’s history-making orbital flight.  Panelists: Nakia Rimmer (Mathematics), Sharon Fleshman (Career Services), and Gina Barrett (Communications).  Save the Date! (Brachfeld Room, #225 Houston)

As always, our listserv emails and website Calendar page will keep you informed of presenters and topics.

Wishing you God’s best,

Dave DeHuff, for the FSCF Steering Group: Mike Atchison; Gina Barrett; Phil Gehrman; Alex Lin, MD; Ray Townsend, MD
