Southern Nazarene University’s (SNU) Library recently hosted a Week of Jubilee. They collected 289 canned items that were donated by SNU students, faculty and staff. The library staff along with other volunteers put together packages of food for the Regional Food Bank’s (RFB) Food for Kids program, which makes it possible for chronically hungry children to have something to eat on weekends and holidays. The volunteers delivered the donations to RFB on Monday, March 17th.

“The biblical Year of Jubilee occurred so the people of Israel and their political, social, and economic processes would actively recognize that everything in this earth is God’s; they participated in God’s plan of recurring restoration. We in the Library want to do our part to foster recurring restoration, and the Week of Jubilee is one way we can do that,” said Katie King, SNU Library Director. “The SNU Library gives credit to God for any strengths or abilities we have, as well as anything we’re able to accomplish together,” said King.
Southern Nazarene University’s mission is to transform lives through higher education in a Christ-centered community. As a Christian community of scholars, we model the hospitality of grace, the pursuit of truth and the practice of discipleship, all within the Wesleyan-holiness tradition, as we prepare graduates who THINK with clarity, ACT with integrity and SERVE with purpose.
