I felt the speaker was very knowledgeable and presented both sides fairly but when I thought about it - if the topic is bearing wrongs patiently I expected the talk to be slanted toward the communist Chinese past history of atrocities and that that would not bode well for putting the catholic church into the care of the Chinese communists> Indeed it is like giving your chickens to a wolf for safegaurding. Even when a few gentlemen in the audience brought up their distrust of the chinese communist it seemed to make the speaker uncomfortable as if she expected retaliation if she became critical or she was secretly on the side of the communist chinese. Now I wished I had spoken up if only to in some small measure to avenge past wrongs., I went to high school in early '70's and there was a nun who lived in retirement at the convent there who made delicious brownies and I remember thinking as I ate them that the hands that made these brownies suffered persecution at the hands of the Chinese communists in 1947 when they overran the country. I have met a Chinese communist and some of her friends. Her family is close to the ruling communist aristocracy and she was friendly but when I knew her more I could see behavior an attitudes that from a Christian perspective are alien to us raised in the Judeo-Christian tradition. I feel very afraid for Chinese Christians who share that tradition because they must see on a daily basis how it rubs up against the communist chinese outlook.

The topic was an important one for anyone who deals with the Church in China. The speaker was knowledgeable while also acknowledging her own limitations as a resident of Hong Kong. The presentation, however, needed a little work, as it felt like I was having to quickly read a book on the screen with each slide. Not easy to do while also trying to listen to the presenter.

This topic was very insightful into methodologies that are available for addressing the issues of African culture, where the physical and spiritual worlds are heavily intertwined. How do we help people who see physical oppression in a spiritual way? By addressing their spiritual needs in terms that they understand, while also helping them to recognize their psychological needs in order to transform their environment. Both are needed.

This was an excellent topic and presentation, and I am looking forward to implementing some of the techniques when I return to Tanzania this year.

I left from the event early because the content being presented was offensive sex-work shaming disguised as feminism. I was shocked that DePaul would host a speech that contained blatantly ignorant points of view. The speakers I managed to sit through neglected the extremely important concept of consent as a factor for why pornography exists and why women participate in it. Porn was being compared to police brutality, rape, and violence in general. Women who participate in porn were shamed and feminist porn was a concept lost on the speakers. I hope that for the future this type of rhetoric can be used in a speech about sex slavery, sex trafficking, rape, forms of sex that are not consensual and that DePaul can host an event raising awareness about those issues instead of the ancient issue of porn presented in this event.

The only thing that went wrong with event, was running out of food early on and having to wait for the arrive of more to feed crowd. Other then that setback this event was great.

I think it was poorly organized and they ran out of food with almost half of the people still waiting to eat. Some of the performers did a great job. This was my second time going and it was a bio difference. In 2017 it was a great fun filled event.

Having never attend before, I was very moved by the breakfast and service for Dr. King. This event consist of speakers, presenters, and inclusion performances that lead and discuss the topic and the life of Dr. King with dignity and facts. To know that this one man had change the course of history is simply amazing. Though his legacy lives on, there is more work to be done for him and ourselves.
