Feb 5 — Beloved Community

Wednesday February 5 – Beloved Community

A week ago on Wednesday morning about the same hour (7:30)  it was +1º;  today it is + 21º but with blowing snow and chancy driving.   Let’s hope we get through another day of winter in reasonably good spirits and reasonably good working order.

Today’s post:

The Beloved Community series comes to us from a Student-Life-led  committee who have planned events and on-campus posters for the weeks that began with Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday and will conclude when the end of February turns campus toward Spring Break.  Here’s today’s post, taken from Bell Hooks,  Killing Rage: Ending Racism.

“(Beloved) community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation, by each of us claiming the identities and cultural legacies that shape who we are and how we live in the world.”

Also: a news note from the Muslim Student Organization

“Drop by Grounds CoffeeHaus on Wednesday, February 5th @ 6PM for a poetry slam and art show. You can write poetry about any topic and recite it or have someone recite it for you. Also, feel free to display any art. There will be refreshments!”
