Shaped by How We Engage
We’ll explore the Christian practices that form us, the academic practices that shape us, and points of commonality between the two. Featured speaker Tish Warren will speak about concepts in her book, The Liturgy of the Ordinary, adapting and applying them to academic life.
Tish will unpack the word “liturgy” and how it impacts working academics. You’ll learn encouraging strategies to live more like Jesus.
We’ll discuss how common, everyday practices and issues of the academic life shape those who engage in them. And we’ll examine practices that might address those issues and shape grad students, faculty and staff in other ways; e.g. sleep, loneliness/friendship, tight finances, mental rigor, and more.
During our time, Tish will offer short presentations followed by Q&A and local site discussions. We invite lively discussion to facilitate an environment of learning together!
