As discussed in our meeting last Tuesday, we are involved in the president’s Interfaith Initiative Challenge. The nature of our involvement is to provide a voice for PSU’s secular students in a program that would seemingly (by its name alone) be exclusive from us. In addition, for some of our goals for this school year, we hope to both advance our community service efforts as well as improve communications and dialogue with the religious organizations on campus. This program would readily allow us to do both. As Obama stated in the introductory video to this program, ‘…an act of service can unite people of all faiths, or even no faith, around a common purpose f helping those in need.’
The first service day for this is Saturday October 22, and the signup sheet for those who are interested in participating can be found here. Remember, the deadline for registration is this coming Wednesday, October 12.
