DC Campus Dean Moderates Blog on Compassion
Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday December 7, 2009
Personal transformation is one of the five Nyack College core values. Living, as well as teaching, the values exemplifies Nyack’s commitment to integrating faith, learning and spiritual transformation.
Nyack College DC has partnered with the Central Union Mission, the oldest social service agency in Washington, DC, which is a part of Gospel Rescue Missions, during the organization’s 125th anniversary.
The faith-based 501(c)3 nonprofit has four locations throughout the Washington area and operates an 18-month rehabilitation program for men, a free meals program, a clothing and furniture distribution center, and a 220-acre retreat center with a camp for underprivileged children and recreation facilities for the community.
In conjunction with this anniversary year-partnership, DC campus Associate Dean Patricia Johnson is moderating a blog on compassion. The current blog leader is Mark Earley (pictured at left), president of Prison Fellowship, founded by Chuck Colson, which is an outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. He is a former Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
