It’s been quiet this week in the Library as many students are away on break, and others are diligently working on their papers at home instead of on the Close. We’ll be hopping the rest of the semester – come to the Library and see what’s going on!
During March, we will celebrate International Women’s Month with an exhibit on Episcopal Women that includes gifts of the late Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray, first African American woman ordained in the Episcopal Church and a graduate of General Theological Seminary. Look for this exhibit the week of March 12!
Later in the month, our own Laura Moore will give a talk as part of the CCT Forum to be held on March 26. The Forum concerns society’s “Christmas culture” and whether the Church’s observance of Advent is simply a ramp up to Christmas or, in an expanded form, a call to rediscover something vital to its life and mission. Please visit The Consultation on Common Texts for more information on this Forum.
(The Consultation on Common Texts is an ecumenical consultation of liturgical scholars and denominational representatives from the United States and Canada, who produce liturgical texts for common use by North American Christian churches. The Episcopal Church is a member of this Consultation.)
