2016-2017 Chapel Theme: Rooted in Love
As Christians, we believe that the revelation of God’s mighty redemptive acts throughout history is contained in both the Old and the New Testaments. God’s holiness, justice, and love are consistent in the pages and lives of the Hebrew people as well as the Jews and Gentiles who placed their trust in God’s new covenant found in the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus the Christ. With one voice, the Scriptures testify of God’s relentless love of humanity calling all people to respond with open hearts and lives: to be transformed and to live transformed lives in the world. As Jesus states in the Gospel of Mark:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”
It is to this end that this year’s Chapel theme points. “Rooted in Love” is taken from the scriptural call to know God’s love and live out that love. This call captures the essence of the Great Commandment known as the Shema. Rooted in God’s faithful love and pursuit of humankind, this theme admonishes us as Christians to respond with a single-minded love of God and love of neighbor. More than an external command or rule to follow, this call of love and compassion flows from the perfect work of God in Christ; transforming individuals and the Church into the character and lifestyle of Jesus. We cannot give love if we ourselves have not encountered and known love. Through chapels, ministries, discipleship groups, mission trips and special forums, we seek to create a space where the entire campus community is invited and challenged to live deeply the Kingdom reality of holiness; growing in spiritual intimacy with God and embodying God’s love through acts of charity and justice.
