Mondays in the Chapel

Monday, March 19, 2018 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

More dates through May 14, 2018

Building W11, Main Dining Room
40 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

February 12 and March 5, we will begin with lunch at 11:30 in W11 and convene in the Chapel from 12-1pm for a conversation on MIT Professor Daniel Jackson's book "Portraits of Resilience." All other dates will follow the regular schedule.

Join us as we gather each Monday in the chapel for a time of reflection and inspiration. We will eat a brief lunch together at 12:00pm in the Main Dining Room of W11 (lunch provided, including kosher options), and then convene in the MIT Chapel at 12:30pm for music and meaningful dialogue on the idea of “resilience”.

Mondays in the Chapel offer a needed pause in the often-frenzied pace of daily life, to thoughtfully engage with the issues that impact our campus, our community, and the world-at-large. Gathering regularly in communal examination of ideas that traverse our individuality allows us to remain grounded in an informed humility and acknowledgement of the commonalities that unite us here at the institute, as we engage in the pursuit of academic knowledge and scholarly excellence.

Together we will examine several themes each semester. The hope is that in this space, we will begin to gain a greater understanding of one another, through engagement in conversations across viewpoints and ideologies and the enjoyment of music that nourishes our souls. The music will be provided by MIT Chapel Artist-in-Residence Nedelka F. Prescod (‪

Please join us any Monday when classes are in session. This event is free and open to all. Mondays in the Chapel is sponsored by Chaplain to the Institute and Director of the Office of Religious Life, Rev. Kirstin C. Boswell-Ford.
