Commonplace seeks to deepen the knowledge, formation, and sense of community of those concerned with ideas of food, health, ecological justice, and faith. They organizes hiking trips, share meals, attend events off-campus, and serve together. They also sponsor community lunches for @wakediv periodically, which are sourced locally.

#WakeDiv Service of Beginnings in worship this morning. “God the potter, we your creatures put aside our busyness to enter your workshop at this time. We come to behold, contemplate and experience your loving, liberating and life giving presence. God, open our restless hearts. And, like these pieces of clay, mold them and shape them into living and useful vessels for your work and service in our broken world. All this we ask in your holy name. Amen.”

#WakeDiv faculty talking with #wakediv2021 about engaging this degree program, professionalism, self-care, academic success, and much more. It’s all integrated. “This is the only time you’ll allow yourself three years to do this formational and foundational work,” said Dr. Katherine Shaner, assistant professor of New Testament.
🔈🔈Come and see what God is doing here. 🎶🎵 A quick clip from Opening Worship this morning during our first day of Orientation for #WakeDiv2021. We are excited to have this group of public religious leaders joining #WakeDiv. Thanks to Sally Ann Morris, our Musician-in-Residence, for the gift of music as she called our incoming students’ names aloud, inviting us all to “Come and See” the many works of justice, reconciliation, and compassion they’ll enact.
What do you “knead” from theological education? Utilizing bread-baking as a metaphor, #WakeDiv Interim Dean Jill Crainshaw leads #wakediv2021 in conversation.
