The Easter 2013 Cresset: The Lilly Issue
Each year, The Cresset: A Review of Literature, the Arts, and Public Affairs features the papers given at the Lilly Fellows Program’s annual National Conference. Last fall, we met at the University of Indianapolis for this conference and the theme of it was “Incorporating Service: The Body at Work.” The speakers were Samuel Wells, Jeffrey P. Bouman, and Regina Wentzel Wolfe. The Revd. Dr. Wells, former Dean of the Chapel at Duke University, is currently Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Visiting Professor at King’s College in London, England. Professor Bouman is Director of the Service-Learning Center at Calvin College. Professor Wolfe is Associate Professor of Catholic Theological Ethics at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and a Wicklander Senior Fellow at the Institute of Business and Professional Ethics at DePaul University.
Check out the Easter Issue and read these wonderful talks given at the national conference. Then continue and read editor James Paul Old’s piece on students from Valparaiso University who make service trips to “Detroit, the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, and Harvey, Illinois…[i]nstead of playing with Frisbees on the beach” on their spring break. Don’t stop there; keep reading The Cresset and the reviews of movies like Les Miserables, music, and books. There are also essays on religion, politics, and selections of poetry. Yes, the Easter Issue of The Cresset is filled with marvelous and wonderful things related to the Lilly Fellows Program, but it has many other interesting things to tempt you, as it always does. The Cresset is published five times a year with its Michaelmas, Advent/Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Trinity issues.
