Campus Ministry debuts 2014-15 chapel theme at first Gathering

At Tuesday morning’s Gathering, campus ministers Jake Burton and Caroline Morris introduced the 2014-2015 chapel theme, Journey, which uses the metaphor of a college road trip to provide insights for students’ faith journeys.

The Gathering will use this metaphor to explore such questions as where does the journey of faith lead, how to reach the destination, and how to handle “roadblocks” along the way.

Burton feels students will relate to this message because “we are all on this faith journey. We are all trying to get somewhere.” He believes that the metaphor of a typical college journey will provide practical answers to important questions in a way that students in particular will understand.

Morris relates the metaphor to John 14, in which Jesus answers the disciple Thomas’ questions about faith journeys with the proclamation, “I am the way.”

This theme will continue to be featured in chapel sessions throughout the 2014-15 school year, and will be featured most prominently in The Gathering.
