Thursday Lunch Lectures!

Beloved Community,

I want to invite you to participate in the Anna Howard Shaw Center Spiritual Stress Support Group that starts next Thursday. Every Thursday from 2-3 PM we will meet in the Shaw Center with Dr. Choi and a counselor from the Danielsen Institute.

After taking Sabbath Theology, I have come to realize that this support group has the potential to be an hour of Sabbath in my week in solidarity and community with others- major themes of the Sabbath according to the ancient traditions of Judea.

Please consider committing to showing up for yourself and each other for the next 10 -11 weeks (during the semester). There is usually a limit for up to 10 people so please respond ASAP to me to let me know to save you a seat (!

Flyer is attached!



You are invited to our first Thursday Lunch Lecture series of the semester! Free lunch and lecture in the Shaw Center on January 30th, 12:30-1:30 pm!

Student Testimonials:

“The Anna Howard Shaw Center is one of the more concrete spaces that fosters a sense of community. Anyone can come here and know that they can get a cup of tea and a couch to sleep on. I also like that it is a space within the School of Theology that provides solitude for persons of gendered minorities and free lunch.” —Nathan Bakken, (MDiv, 2017)
“Without the Shaw Center, I would probably not survive. The place, coffee, food, people, and conversation–everything the Shaw Center sustains and nourishes me.”–Hyebin Hong, (MTS, 2012/PhD, 2019)
“Anna Howard Shaw has been a great resource for students; outside of their weekly events, they are supportive of student lead initiatives. Ideas come to fruition with the support of the institution, and AHSC will be one of the change agents in the process of making ideas into reality.”– Ylisse Bess-Washington, (MDiv, 2017)
