Greetings everyone.

Well, last week you all got to meet two of our super-cool students, Jeff and Chingboi. Jeff represents the comic-book-loving variety here and Chingboi is one of our international students that also works with us here in recruitment. She’s pretty much a giant blessing. Jeff is too, for that matter. Today we want to bring you all a few things that we’re promoting here at McCormick. The first thing is that McComrick is having it’s very first Farmer’s Market! You can see the flyer below and read a short description from Abby Mohaupt.

Second, we also want to make you aware of a pretty cool class that our Ethics Professor Jen Ayers is teaching this summer. Check out the link below to see the flyer for the class.


Farmer’s Market

On April 2, 2011, McCormick will host a winter’s farmers market in the Common Room. It is co-sponsored by Student Session, Eco-Justice and Faith in Place, an interfaith environmental organization that works with congregations around Illinois to help religious people be good stewards of the earth.

Remember that caring for the earth is part of our call as Christians. Eating local food and supporting local farmers are part of that commitment. Don’t miss an opportunity to meet local farmers, taste local food, and purchase local items. There will also be Fair Trade coffee, chocolate and tea.

Need another reason to come? Everyone’s going. Invite your family. Invite your church. Invite your friends. Everyone is welcome.

For more information, please contact abby at
*please note: while some farmers will be able to take debit cards, most take only cash or check.


Christian Perspectives on Labor and Economy

Rev. Jeniffer Ayers, one of our beloved professors (she teaches Ethics), will be offering a class this summer, E313, Christian Perspectives on Labor and Ecomony, in conjunction with the Interfaith Worker Justice located here in Chicago. One of our Alums, Honna Eichler, works there now.

Students will be in class part of the time and the rest of the time, they will be attending the Interfaith Worker Justice2011 National Conference. If you have questions, you can email Jennifer Ayers at
