I am Charlie? Before January 7, 2015, no one had ever tweeted the phrases #iamcharlie or #jesuischarlie. But within days of the massacre in the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, the phrases became the most popular hashtags ever. A dozen people were gunned down by religious extremists—over a cartoon? Seriously?! Even in the name of religion, killing out of vengeance is horribly wrong. Recoiling in horror, everyone wanted to stand in solidarity with the victims. Overnight, “Je suis Charlie” symbolized the stand against terrorism, and placards sprung up everywhere. I had never even heard of the magazine, but in some sense, I too, wanted to take my stand against terrorism. Should I jump on the bandwagon and lift a banner high: “I am Charlie”?
At the end of the spring semester each year we offer several one-week courses on our campus. In 2014 we are offering: "Bonhoeffer in His Context" (College and Seminary level), "History of Christianity" (Seminary) and "Effective Ministry Management" (Seminary).
