Open Doors #4: Protestant Worship, focus on social justice

Rachel Berkowitz ’09 from the Interfaith Justice League sends in some info about the fourth event in the Open Doors series:

Curious about social justice, spirituality, or religious observance on campus?

On Sunday, January 25, 2009, in Memorial Chapel at 2PM, join guest minister The Reverend Dr. A. Knighton Stanley, author of A View From My Window and The Children is Crying along with Pastor Joan Cooper Burnett, Protestant Chaplain, the Chapel Ministers, Praise and Worship Team, and the Interfaith Justice League, as we gather to celebrate our covenant relationship with God and are reminded of our relationship with neighbor.

This Open Door gathering is designed as a cry to God for justice in the midst of injustice, a call to God’s people to practice justice, and a proclamation of God’s vision of a just world.

This is the fourth event in an “Open Doors” series of open religious/spiritual gatherings around campus, organized by the Interfaith Justice League and various faith communities, in which we visit a different religious/spiritual service each week, and invite the greater campus community to join us. Keep your eyes open for more upcoming events!
