The week of November 2nd-6th Spring Hill College’s Campus Ministry puts on their annual Justice and Service Week.

The theme for this year’s Justice and Service Week is “United We Stand.” The Service, Justice and Immersion Campus Ministry Intern Easton Hollis stated, “with the election, there is so much division and I think that we as student leaders can promote unity with everybody, being able to listen, to actively listen, and advocate for those issues. I think that because the election is this week we can start to see the perspectives of our students and see how we can be more unified no matter what the election outcome.”

The Director of Campus Ministry Colleen Lee explains why they have Justice and Service Week every year, “We do justice and service week because it highlights that part of our spring hill mission and helps students to become engaged in the world and in their community.” She goes on to explain why they chose the week of the election, “this year we chose the week of the election specifically because we thought that was the most tangible way that people would be engaged” she went on to say, “We wanted to make sure that we were providing avenues for students in the Spring Hill community to process through a very historic event in a way that represented our mission.”

In an email sent out by Campus Ministry, they stated that members of the campus community pledge to “be civically engaged after the election.” When asked to further explain what they meant Lee explained, “The election and voting is one way to be civically engaged. It’s one way of exercising your rights but we know that’s just the first step. What we hope is that students, faculty and staff members take the opportunity to put the attention and the effort that they have been putting into the election into other things as well. We know that no matter what the results are, we are living in a country that’s very hurt and broken right now and so we will have to move and walk past the election and we want people to remain engaged in the issues that they are passionate about during the election.”

For information on Justice and Service Week lookout for emails from Campus Ministry!
