Welcome to the SCL Blog!

September 18, 2008

This blog is a new idea we have for Students for Compassionate Living (SCL) this year! Our hope is that it can serve as a forum for students to discuss animal related issues, find out about upcoming SCL events, as well as events in the Grand Rapids area,  and perhaps even exchange delicious vegan recipes! The blog is open to posts from anyone. If you would like to post, make a comment to let us know!

SCL began a little over three years ago and is Calvin’s animal advocacy organization. Our goal has been to foster dialogue at Calvin regarding the relationship between humans and animals, to encourage students to think about what their daily choices can mean for the lives of billions of animals, and to educate students about the myriad of ways animals are used in our present society. We seek to support those who wish to pursue and explore the issues of Christian stewardship, animal welfare, and animal rights.

This year is already looking great for SCL! Regular vegan potlucks, different speakers, and panel discussions are already planned for the first semester. The first vegan potluck will be held this Friday, in the library lobby (by the fire place) at 5 pm. Come enjoy delicious vegan food, hear more details about what we have planned for the year and how you can help out, as well as share your own ideas and interests for SCL. If you aren’t sure what to bring, Oreos or drinks always work well. And if you can’t bring anything, no worries, there is always plenty of food! Hope to see you there!

    Wow, this blog looks excellent! You can change the layout if you want, but I think it’s a pretty good one. Nice posters for Wednesday, by the way.
