This past weekend AQ hosted Apologia’s first Inter-fellowship Christian Formal, a joyful party comprised of more than 100 wonderful guests from various Christian groups across campus, delicious food, and really fun swing and modern dancing.
The Dartmouth Apologia (http://www.dartmouthapologia.org/) is an undergraduate journal of Christian thought dedicated to articulating the integration of Christian faith and reason in our human quest to know Truth and the transformative power of that Truth in our lives. Aquinas House’s long support of the Apologia, an ecumenical journal staffed by both Catholics and Protestants, has been and continues to be greatly appreciated.
Bearing in mind the reality that sound theory grounds sound practice, a position fully coherent with the life-giving and life-elevating nexus of Christian faith and reason, this particular formal amounted to a truly joyful and edifying event.
We are hopeful that this will be the first of many yet to come well into the future. Finally, while many people helped make this wonderful event a reality, we are all especially grateful to Elizabeth Winkle ’15 for her stout organizational efforts without which this event would not have come to fruition.
