This Week Day by Day:

Monday, Feb 10th

In keeping with the rhythms of Mondays past, Erica Stewart misses all classes today.

Tuesday, Feb 11th

Looking for an opportunity to step back on the busyness of school life to relax and reflect? Come to Soul Sessions! This week’s topic will be a reflection on images of God. We will take time to meditate on where we see God’s hand working in our lives and contemplate better communion with Him. Come stop by St Rita’s Hall room 113 at 4PM for meditation, prayer and reflection!

“The Art of Reconciliation: To forgive or not to forgive” by our favorite pastoral ministry teacher, Dr. Joyce Zavarich, for the next installment of Theology On-Tap; and, as always, at 8PM, Bryn Mawr Beef and Ale.

Come cheer on The Apocalypse, your theology intramural basketball team, at 7PM on the Pavilion side court as they look to cap an undefeated season.

To paraphrase St. Paul, when writing to the people of Corinth, “There are many parts to the team. The fans belong to the team just as much as the players. The players cannot say to the fans, we do not need you! For God made all the parts necessary. If the players are honored, the fans are honored with it.”
