The Joys and Challenges of Joint Ministry

November 10, 2014

Back in the mid-90s, I went off to college sensing a call to ordained ministry, but I had no idea what that could mean for me practically.  Then, I watched the Campus Chaplain (who, as luck would have it, was an Episcopal Priest!) minister to my college community and I knew this is how God could […]

New Blog for Sharing Information, Experiences, and Resources

November 10, 2014

Hello folks and welcome to our new blog! Rather than creating a new blog and a new page for every event we do, we’ve brought all our past blogs together to rest here (making better use of categories). You will find posts from our office as well as posts from the participants in our ELIYA […]

Year-end Review

November 10, 2014

At the end of the semester, I often put together a newsletter for my students and “Friends of Absalom” to remind and share with people the events of the semester. Here are a few highlights and reflections on the semester: The Minute-to-Win-It Ramadan Party This year marked the second annual Ramadan If-tar for the Center, […]

New Year, New Quarter

November 10, 2014

Today, UC Davis’ Winter Quarter begins.  There’s always a sense of excitement and newness as a quarter begins.  That’s the beauty of the academic calendar, right?  Every few months, everything changes: new classes, new schedules, new expectations, new rhythm of life.  But this one holds some different wonderings for students: what will carry over from the […]

INSPIREd at Washington State University

November 10, 2014

Dylan Judge-Hoff is a  a senior at Washington State University in Pullman, WA and attends INSPIRE (a weekly joint Episcopal-Methodist gathering) on campus at the Interfaith House. The Interfaith House, specifically the INSPIRE program, has been very good to me. The non-descript former sorority house turned coffeehouse/religious community center is the closest thing I have […]

2012 Resolution: Feel Taller

November 10, 2014

Every New Year’s Day we get to focus on the year to come and reflect on the year behind us. We get to think about things we have done, left undone, and make plans for the things we would like to do and maybe not do. It’s like a New Year’s absolution and resolution packed […]

What Do They Like?

November 10, 2014

I’m currently at a conference with about 120 church leaders throughout the Episcopal Church. While no one has their age on their name tag, it’s not difficult to discern that I’m likely the youngest person in the room. Don’t worry, when you’re a priest in your early 30’s you get used to it. I don’t […]

A Church for Young Adults

November 10, 2014

“But what do young adults want?” I get asked this question a lot, and so do my campus ministry colleagues.  Those of us in campus ministry see more people under 30 on a weekly basis than many of our congregations do in a month (or in some cases, a year).  I think everyone agrees this […]
