Each year during graduation weekend, Canadian Mennonite University selects one graduating student from each department to present (a speech) or perform (a piece of music) at the “In Gratitude” event, that reflects their time at CMU. The event brings together family members, graduates, students, faculty, and staff. In April 2012 I shared my thoughts and experiences in the department of Biblical and Theological Studies (BTS). My major was in BTS, but I had minors in Peace and Conflict Transformation Studies, and Philosophy as well. You will find these disciplines intertwined in the speech, as they have become inseparable in my own thought.
