Tent City 3: Hosted by SPU Winter 2014-15
Believing that the church needs to unite at a time when our country is so divided, we gathered on December 15, 2014 as Christians from all racial backgrounds, united by the gospel of Jesus Christ, to worship, pray, listen, encourage, and challenge each other.
October 28, 2014, four SPU faculty led campus in a dialogue that offered historical and theological context in which to process the recent events in Ferguson, as well as vulnerably presenting authentic perspectives and struggles on race relations. With insights from Brian Bantum, David Nienhuis, Jorge Preciado, Kimberly Segall and facilitated by Tali Hairston, this conversation was memorable.
Our Ninth Annual Lecture Series with evangelical leader, civil rights legend and founder Dr. John Perkins was on April 21-22, 2014. We celebrated 10 years of the Perkins Center. Dr. Perkins encouraged us through Psalm 23 during a Bible study on Monday and his chapel address on Tuesday.
In May 2014, the Center for Scholarship and Faculty Development partnered with the Perkins Center to host a panel discussion with Dr. Kimberly Segall, Khawla Hadi and Marwa al-Mtowaq explore the origins of sectarian divide and narrating altnernative histories through story and art.
