Oxford students from many faith communities are involved in this ecumenical group. Worship, discussion groups, Bible study, volunteer projects and outdoor activities are included in this varied ministry. Oxford Fellowship sponsors a Fall Retreat for all Oxford students, staff and faculty at the beginning of the academic year. A Spring Spiritual Life Retreat focuses on spiritual development. Tuesday night discussions are held at 6:00 p.m. in the Oxford Student Center. This ecumenical group works cooperatively with the Oxford Interfaith Council. Contact the Oxford College Chaplain, Rev. Lyn Pace (770.784.8392, firstname.lastname@example.org). Learn more.
VOICES OF INNER STRENGTH SERVICE TRIP
Each year during Spring Break, students in the Voices of Inner Strength Choir participate in a service/learning project. VOIS members work, sing, and serve in an ecumenical setting with persons of a culture that is different from theirs. Upon returning to Emory, the choir members serve as ambassadors for ecumenical educational services and experiences. Contact Cynthia A. Shaw, 404.727.4148, email@example.com, or Ivan Maddox, 404.727.6225, firstname.lastname@example.org.
RELIGION AND HEALTH CONNECTION
For the past few years the Office of the Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life, the Interfaith Health Program of Rollins School of Public Health and the Religion and Health Collaborative and Center for Health, Culture and Society have together sponsored The Religion and Health Connection, a network for persons interested in both religion and health issues and exploring questions related to the integration of physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of health. Emory faculty, staff, students and others from the Atlanta community gathered over lunch to meet one another and hear speakers discuss interdisciplinary topics related to the well-being of the whole person.
This program has now been incorporated into the Religion and Health Collaborative. For more information, or to be added to the Religionand Health Collaborative listserv, contact Susan Landskroener at 404-727-4110, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
A first year experience for students seeking to expand their understanding of different religious tradtions as well as their own.
