Want to make friends in a small, informal group of people in the Albright community? Beginning October 15 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Such a group will be meeting for the first time at the Multi-Faith Center, 1811 Linden Street, on campus. The intent is simple: to bring people together to get to know one another in a way often not possible in the busy life many of us lead.
The project is called Eventide and was conceived by Rev. Paul Clark, chaplain, and Dr. John Morgan, adjunct professor of philosophy at the college's Accelerated Degree Program. “We wanted to create a space where people could share their stories and hear those of others in an informal, hopefully enjoyable way. We felt the need ourselves and among many others simply to get together once a month for an hour and half to get to know one another better in a relaxed way,” said Dr. Morgan.
“Each one of us has a unique story, but we seldom get to tell it. And few of us take the time to really listen to someone else. This monthly gathering gives us time to do so,” Morgan said, adding the group is being created to foster respect for one another.
The group will meet monthly, except in December, until June. It is open to students, faculty and staff, but limited to the twelve persons. If you would to be part of this new group, you can get more information or sign up by emailing email@example.com or calling (610)-921-5520.
