Baylor This I Believe is a website that is adapted from the larger international organization This I Believe whose goal is to engage people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Similarly, our project is a website that shares essays written by Baylor students and alumni specifically sharing about the core values of what they believe. This project allows our Baylor community to learn from one another and appreciate different view points and perspectives on faith.

All people have access to their True Self from their very first inhalation and exhalation, which is the very sound of the sacred. It is the literally unspeakable Jewish name for God, YHWH. It cannot be spoken but only breathed: inhaling and exhaling with open lips. It is the first and last "word" you will ever utter - most likely without knowing it. -Richard Rohr

The Public Deliberation Initiative (PDI) at Baylor University is an initiative of critical deliberative democracy, activism, interdisciplinary collaboration, pedagogical research, student involvement, and training for ongoing community engagement. This initiative seeks to engage students, staff, faculty, and community members in constructive dialogue and deliberation that addresses important global and local issues and offers new perspectives for participants.
Joining together in this way allows our community to practice hospitality for one another and differing opinions, engaged listening, and thinking of ways to serve our local and global community.
