Homecoming Theme

Grace & Human Nature

Join us Friday night and Saturday morning as we explore the theme of Grace & Human Nature together as an alumni community. We’ll be exploring questions like, When we walk through pain, what gives us solace? When the future defies our expectations, how can we find certainty? When we feel inadequate, where do we turn for approval?
