Tapestries, Touchstones, and Thresholds will each meet for a four-week period this fall beginning in September and October. These small groups for students of all and no faith background and led by the chaplains, will focus on various aspects of our spiritual lives–Tapestries will explore and practice elements of building authentic relationships and community. Touchstones will work with students to explore what their core values are and how they might live them out. Thresholds will examine spiritual practices that cultivate our inner lives and help us live with more peace and strength.
