Upcoming Interfaith Programs
LIVE THE QUESTIONS: THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
Thursday, April 30th; 7:30-8:30pm, MICA Lounge, Stamp Student Union
Live the Questions is a safe, relaxed place for students from all secular, spiritual and religious backgrounds to share their perspectives on questions of beliefs, meaning and values. For our last meeting of the semester, we will discuss the overarching topic of God. Does God exist? What is your concept of God, gods or lack thereof? What does it mean to believe or not believe in God? Come join the conversation! We'd love to hear your opinion. Free snacks are provided. Sponsored by the Memorial Chapel and MICA
