Finding Purpose. Charles W. Allen. Talking about purposes (plural) is easy. We have lots of them, and we can tell people what they are without feeling puzzled. “What’s the purpose of this course?” “To help me get my degree.” Talking about “Purpose” (singular) is trickier.
Charles W. Allen
The good life for man is the life spent in seeking for the good life for man, and the virtues necessary for the seeking are those which will enable us to understand what more and what else the good life for man is.
—Alasdair MacIntyre, After Virtue (Notre Dame: University of Notre Dame Press, 1981), p. 204.
Grace Unlimited is an Indianapolis-based campus ministry committed to celebrating God’s love on God’s terms, unlimited by ours. Supported by Lutherans, Episcopalians and other people of faith and good-will, we believe that God’s love is already at work in the lives of everyone, moving to the Spirit of God’s common life with us in Jesus Christ, and our mission is to help all of us together grow in awareness and appreciation of where God may be leading us today. Our leaders claim common convictions, but no final answers, to remain open to what God is doing, on God’s terms, beyond our own Churches and Creeds. We welcome everyone to join us in this vital quest.
