Notable stops include: the Obama, Farrakhan, and Muhammad Ali homes; the Hyde Park mansion used for Japanese/German/Italian internment; UChicago's trauma center, nuclear legacies, and the site of Charles Thomas' shooting by UCPD.

Spring Deep Dish Series: Calling

How are we supposed to “know” what kind of work to do, where to live, who to be? Does our Christian faith offer any resources for the discernment of calling? Join us on May 17th at 6pm in the Byllesby Room, over delicious deep dish (or related foods), as Rev. Julianne Buenting guides an open conversation on vocation. Come with questions, and ready to share and hear stories about calling and profession – and their relation to spirituality. Kindly RSVP below or email kenjikuramitsu@gmail.com.
