Happy New Year from Calvin College
We wish you God's peace and presence in 2011. Calvin will be closed until January 3, but you are still able to watch a video of students, faculty and staff telling the Christmas story from Luke 2. You may also read a meditation by the Worship Institute's Dale Cooper on "the word become flesh."
January Series 2011
The January Series, which is in its 24th season, begins on campus on January 5 and runs every weekday until January 25. The series also hits the road with remote webcast locations in Michigan, across North America and overseas! Check out the options in your area and read more about this year's speakers and presentations.
The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship and the Center for Excellence in Preaching are preparing to host the 24th Symposium on Worship, January 27–29, 2011. The symposium covers a wide range of topics: from praying and singing the Psalms to nurturing faith in children, youth and adults, and partnering with the global church. Read more about the 2011 Symposium on Worship.
Every year, the audience grows. “Slowly, students brought in the actors, their friends, their families,” said communication arts and sciences professor Daniel Garcia. Over the short history of the biannual Media Showcase, the line of people waiting to enjoy a semester’s worth of cinematic output from Calvin’s media production students has stretched up the stairs from the Robert L. Bytwerk Video Theater and into the DeVos Communication Center lobby. What is this event?
