Distinctive Hope: Together in Spirit
Had this photo been taken during any other semester, these pews — along with the rest of Dimnent Memorial Chapel — would have been filled with some 1,000 students, faculty, staff and community members gathered for one of the college’s thrice-weekly morning Chapel services. This past fall, of course, was no normal semester, and providing the safest possible environment through physical distancing meant that in-person Chapel couldn’t take place. That didn’t mean, though, that Chapel couldn’t happen. The services continued with their blend of message (a journey through the Acts of the Apostles) and music, but livestreamed so that the campus community and beyond could still worship together while apart.
