Description

Every profession possesses its own particular dangers and offers its own specific opportunities for service. Those of us who are living and working in the Academy are faced with a specific set of challenges. In this session we take a step back and look at the ideals and dreams the Academy offers. What is the university at its best, what is it at its worst, and do we really have to sell our souls to succeed? And what about our role in the body of Christ and in the grand project of world missions? Whether you are active in the Sciences or the Arts & Humanities, you are welcome to join in.
