Whether we are living with old friends or new strangers, we naturally feel anxiety when beginning cohabitation with our roommates. We acknowledge that living together can magnify once minor imperfections. Because of this, we ask for grace for ourselves and commit to practicing forgiveness towards our roommates. We ask God to bless the space we inhabit with others and to give us the strength to show love and compassion even in difficulty. May our dorms, apartments, and homes always remain safe spaces where we can create a base for growth and learning on our campus.
