From Sept. 20 to 22, Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College will host the annual Autumn Hope Conference, titled “Native Place: Disruption and Healing.” The weekend conference will take the long view of immigration and examine the impact of different people groups on the landscape.
“Learning from Long Traditions” is the theme of the Annual Autumn Hope Conference at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College Sept. 28-30, 2012. This faith-based event is a blend of time outdoors, reflection, conversation and worship. This year’s theme will explore the relationship between people and land in diverse times and places.
An “exciting new chapter” has begun at Goshen College, according to the college’s President James E. Brenneman on March 24 as he launched three institutes, all focused on the college’s distinctive academic strengths as they relate to faith.
