Mark your calendars for another Library Game Night – Friday, February 22nd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Take a break from all of your readings, translations, reflections, and other assignments to stop by the Library for pizza, games, and fellowship. All are welcome – students, staff, faculty, family, and friends. It’s always a blast – hope to see you there!
Spirit Lab invites you to join us for a series of conversations about the ways in which the Holy Spirit speaks to us. In this first session (2/21 from 6:30 – 8 PM) we will:
* Present an overview of the ways God may communicate with us, using examples from scripture.
* Provide time for us to share our own personal encounters with our living God.
* Provide an overview of various spiritual practices that can enhance your ability to listen to the Holy Spirit.
At the end of this first session, you’ll have the opportunity to share which topics you’d like to learn more about so we can tailor the content in the next session to you. We will record the session for anyone who is in unable to attend live.

This semester, join Spirit Lab and the Aus Memorial Lecture Fund for an experiment in Christian formation.
Every Wednesday after chapel, starting on February 20 with Professor Lois Malcolm, hear faculty, staff, and students share their stories of faith as they answer two key questions: Why are you a Christian? What difference does Jesus make in your life?
Afterward, you’ll have the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences of faith (and share it with others, if you so desire!).
If you’re on campus, plan on coming to the Auxiliary Dining Room from 12:00-1:00 each Wednesday–lunch is provided.
If you’re a distributed learner or unable to make it on Wednesdays, the faith stories will be posted in a special Moodle module where the presenter and other faculty and student hosts will engage in ongoing conversation and story sharing.
Interested? Fill out this form to let us know you’d like to participate so that we can plan for catering and Moodle set-up: https://goo.gl/forms/fVX0tV7eAGEv1pw33
Questions? Reach out to Professor Kathryn Schifferdecker (firstname.lastname@example.org), Professor Dwight Zscheile (email@example.com), Professor Alan Padgett (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Spirit Lab Coordinator Bethany Ringdal (email@example.com).
