Her voice was an incredible gift to a campus and community that is still working to be a place where all people can not only co-exist but also thrive. Dr. Barrett-Fox also spoke at an evening event on Saturday of that weekend, and was the guest-preacher for a collaborative Palm Sunday service with University Mennonite Church and University Baptist & Brethren Church on Palm Sunday morning.
