A 25-minute pocket of peace amid life's hurried pace aims to help attendees release burdens and rest in God.

For those seeking healing of body, mind, or spirit, the chaplain will offer an optional age-old rite of laying on of hands with anointing. Ecumenical and open to everyone.

|6:00 pm||The Black Fatherhood Project Thomas Commons|
First-time filmmaker Jordan Thierry offers context and conversation in this honest exploration of fatherhood in black America. Through a telling of his own story and interviews with historians, he traces the roots of the fatherless black home and reveals a history much more complex and profound than is often told. Putting that history into perspective is a dialogue among fathers discussing their experiences, inspirations, and insight on how communities can come together to ensure the power of a father's love is not lost on America's black children.
