Chapel Hour to Hold March Diversity Forum

March 17, 2009

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan University will present its weekly chapel hour on Wednesday, March 25, at 11:00 a.m. in the Evelyn Chapel (1301 N. Park St., Bloomington).

The service is open to the public and is a part of this month’s Diversity Forum.

Each month for the Diversity Forum, a new guest will speak at chapel hour, lecture in a class, and hold an open discussion regarding their experiences with diversity.

This month’s guest, the Rev. Dr. Alex Kasirye-Musoke, is a native of Uganda who studied in England at the London School of Economics. Kasirye-Musoke has also lived and worked in Kenya and Canada, where he was ordained in the Anglican Church. After his ordination, Kasirye-Musoke ministered in urban and rural communities across Ontario.

“Diversity Forum is a program intended to feature well-educated ministers from different countries and backgrounds who have chosen to serve small communities,” said University Chaplain Hope Luckie.

Luckie hopes the Diversity Forum program will foster discussion and thought about how people’s different backgrounds can lead them to similar paths despite a multitude of options.
