No Wed mtg this week, but Conference Saturday!

Dear PHCF,

We will not be having our regular Wednesday lunch meeting this week -- instead, join us at a fantastic panel set up on Understanding American Muslims in Sommer Hall at noon tomorrow!

We also wanted to remind you about the symposium on Christian Faith, Reason, and Vocation this Saturday: please join us and spread the word to your friends and colleagues! We hope that this will be a time of much encouragement as we connect, listen, and learn from one another across the various Hopkins schools/campuses -- all for the glory of our God, as we pursue unity as a Church and practice serving him in our studies and work in Baltimore and beyond.

The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he. Deuteronomy 32:4

3. Do you like writing/editing? Contribute to the Hopkins Dialectic: 
The Dialectic, a journal of Christian thought at JHU, is seeking grad student editors/writers for its spring 2017 issue. Please see attached for a list of abstracts. Some more details:
  • If you'd like to edit, please sign up on the attached google doc with your name and email address below the respective piece. Your role: look through the piece at least once before the final draft is due on March 26th (if you'd like to be more involved, the full writing schedule is at the bottom of the document for your reference). We will connect you with the writer so a timeline can be mutually agreed upon. 
  • If you'd like to submit writing (1500-4000 words for essays, anywhere up to 1500 words for poetry), please email your piece to jhu.dialectic@gmail.com by March 18th. We will get back to you within the week concerning whether your piece has been selected or if additional edits need to be made. Unfortunately, due to printing constraints these pieces will not appear in print this issue, but they will be uploaded online and posted on our Facebook account (our FB account has nearly 400 likes and last year--when our account had only ~200 likes--pieces got on average 50-100 hits). In the coming semesters we hope to open up our print edition to grad students as well. 
  • Any questions? Please email Karl Johnson: kjohn198@jhu.edu
