Many years ago, one of the Chaplains left a large blank artbook near the altar of the College Chapel. He left no instructions or directions or suggestions on what this book was intended for. Over time, students began using this book to write to God, to write of their needs, their pain, their desires and their thanks. There have been many volumes of the book since that first one; each filled with stories of love and loss, of loneliness, friendship, success and faith. There are still no guidelines or rules.....
However, this book has become central to the life of the Chapel Community.
