About Us

Our Vision

Cana is a Christian journal that promotes the beauty and vibrancy of Christian thought in a university setting.

Confident that the end of all knowledge is God’s truth, we engage with UChicago’s long tradition of intellectual inquiry from the place where mind meets soul.

Our Values

Peace: We further dialogue on important issues that is welcoming but also challenging.

Faith: We trust the members of our campus have each other’s best interests in mind, and we trust God to do good even when we fail.

Hope: In humility and prayer, we take risks in furthering the dialogue on campus, with the confidence that our community will grow because of it.

Love: We seek the good of our campus and all of its members, choosing to love it by creating spaces for members to air their concerns and perspectives on important issues openly and safely, leading to transformative conversation and ultimately better understanding.

What We Believe

Taken from the Apostle’s Creed:

We believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. We confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sings and look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
