Dean of Students Christine Vogel led us in a family-style arranged worship this week entitled, “Holy Waste.” Worshipers were arranged by table and at the end of the service, the Eucharist was partaken within our individual tables and presided by Joanne Lindstrom, our Director of Field Studies and Experiential Education.

Christine preached on the story of Mary’s anointing of Jesus’ feet with the costly nard perfume and a foot-washing for the community followed by members of the Worship Team. Christine challenged us to wastefully love those around us and to radically involve ourselves in the tabooed needs for justice in today’s world.

The service ended with our weekly community meal, this time seated at our worship tables with our fellow worshipers.
