Day of Prayer

At least three times a week students gather in the A.J. Gordon Memorial Chapel for large services and presentations. Chapel and Convocation help define our identity as a community of believers as we undertake our educational mission. Yesterday, the campus participated in the Annual Day of Prayer.
"As part of the annual day of prayer at Gordon, students wrote prayers on strips of cloth and tied them to a wire structure," said Greg Carmer, Dean of the Chapel. "It was our desire to visually represent the prayers of the community; to allow spoken and unspoken longings and desires to be assembled into a piece of living art. Once the structure is taken down, the fabric strips will be collected into wreaths and remain as a token of of the collective spiritual life of the community."
