Each month we hope to give an update on the 3rd Way Collective experience at Penn State! Follow this blog to learn more about how we’ve been creating spaces for peace, justice, and faith at Penn State.
This month was a busy and enjoyable one! Collaborative events included hosting The Walking Roots Band for a concert for Penn State students and the community at Abba Java Coffee House, relaunching the Gray Matters series with a focus on the election season, a collaborative conversation with a few other groups with Islamaphobia scholar Todd Green, and joining with LGBTQ affirming groups for a HUB takeover event during Penn State’s Coming Out Week. These kinds of events are so much more meaningful when we connect with other groups who share a particular cause.
We continued to tinker with our regular events, cutting back on some of our regular events so that there was more time for personal connection and collaboration with other groups.
A handful of 3rd Way Collective students joined with our supporting congregation for University Mennonite Church’s annual fall retreat. This was a lovely way for a few students to connect with the congregation who is supporting this campus ministry.
