The Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life at SMU enhances the educational mission of the university through programming and services grounded in the United Methodist tradition. We promote moral and ethical leadership development.
Underground at SMU is held in the Hughes Trigg Theater at 12:00 pm each Wednesday.
Mission: - To oversee opportunities for Christian worship - To encourage students to think about how faith informs our lives - To welcome all faiths and those of no faith - To symbolize the integrity of faith in the academy - To nurture the faith growth of the community at SMU
Today's Care Chat episode is on the topic of self-care and parenting.
Dr. Veronica Davis, Associate Chaplain at SMU, and Lacie Jefferson, a commissioned minister with the Disciples of Christ, a staff chaplain at a local area healthcare system, and a graduate of SMU Perkins, provide us with words of wisdom on how to deal with self-care and parenting during difficult times.
[FREE BOOKS📚] The work of anti-racism is not optional for Christians - it is our duty as disciples of Jesus to disrupt white supremacy and proclaim that black lives matter.
For as long as the church as existed it has been complicit in perpetuating systemic racism, and we have on obligation to interrupt this complicity with action as individuals and as a community.
Reading a book can challenge our assumptions, confront our long-held beliefs, raise our awareness, and educate us on anti-racism. UKirk is offering to buy any student the anti-racism book of their choice. We want to remove the barriers to your learning and growth and invite you into the work. DM us with the book of your choice and we’ll send you a copy! #pcusa #antiracism #georgefloyd p.s. thanks the idea @ukirkatl

Student Affairs Introductions | Meet Dr. Veronica Davis! She is an Associate Chaplain for the Chaplain's Office. During her time in quarantine, she has been re-reading Harry Potter (she's currently on book 7!) and binging Parks and Rec. After quarantine, if she could travel anywhere in the world she wants to go somewhere with beautiful landscape views like New Zealand or Scotland. Although she has recently enjoyed spending time in the kitchen, she loves Prego Pasta House on Greenville!

Emphatic Interfaith Relationship #happywednesday
#FlashbackFriday: Today, on the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember the SMU Dr. Dennis Simon Civil Rights Pilgrimage. #SMUHumanRights students go on this annual journey to learn about his legacy. Led by Professor Ray Jordan and organized by the SMU Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life, we visit the sites and hear from the "Foot Soldiers" of the #CivilRightsMovement. The social realities of this pandemic remind us that Dr. King's struggle for #racialjustice continues. #DemandDignity with us at smu.edu/supporthumanrights. #MLK52
Audio: Dr. King's last speech, "I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”

Just in case ... it’s Monday 😀
So grateful for the young men of SMU Catholic for volunteering their Saturday to pickup 6 different grocery orders for the elderly of Lakewood. These seniors are the most vulnerable population in the COVID-19 pandemic, and they fear for their health each time they enter the community. On this day, that fear was silenced. #quarantine #actsofkindness

Shields up, heroes!
Every hero needs a shield.
Dr. Seth Orsborn and Alyssa Phillips couldn’t let our 24/7 maker-space gather dust. The two are using the tools in the Deason Innovation Gym to fabricate more than 700 face shields for local healthcare workers.
