You are invited to engage community leaders as they tell the story about how their faith undergirds and inspires their leadership, and their work to build a better world. Learn from business leaders, scientists, professors, and community activists as we share a meal, listen, and engage in conversation.
We are a diverse community here at the U, and these conversations are meant to be ecumenical and interfaith in nature. We strive to reflect this in our speakers, and in the conversation partners that we engage with around tables, as we share food and conversation.

Wed., Nov. 8; 7-8m // Faith, Science & Healing
In November, we will be joined by Professor and Dean of the School of Nursing, Connie Delaney. She will explore how she’s navigated the intersections of faith, science and healing throughout her life, and how she understands her vocation as the Dean of the School of Nursing.

Matthew 20: 26-28
26 …whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave; 28 just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
