The Penn Faculty-Staff Christian Forum will resume their weekly gatherings this September 27 at Noon, in Houston Hall. That first week only we will meet in the Griski Room, #311 Houston. Each following week we’ll meet in the Bishop White Room, #217. (Feel free to bring take-out food.)
Our New Semester Resolution is to “start on time and adjourn at 1:00PM.” Yes, really. Out of respect for your busy schedules, we will begin our discussion and introduce our presenter by 12:05. We’ll announce the “official” end of our meeting at 1:00. We have our room until 1:30 and hope some will feel free to remain and visit, or simply continue the previous lively discussion.
What topics will be discussed and presented this fall?
Our popular “Great Souls” series will re-emerge a couple of times each semester. This fall we will be “mentored” by the lives, words and legacies of believers like C. S. Lewis, U.N. Secretary General Charles Malik, and abolitionist Sojourner Truth. Our Christmas party will focus on “Great Souls: Handel and the Messiah,”with composer and WRTI radio host Kile Smith. Other topics and presenters for fall will be on our web Calendar page, by September 20th.
God’s heart for the university and his resources for those who follow Christ there is our general theme. It’s always our privilege and joy to meet new faces and re-connect with familiar ones,
