Spiritual Lives at Lawrence

The Spiritual Lives at Lawrence was a series of conversations with diverse persons from across campus in 2017 and early 2018. The Dean along with student filmographer, John Newhall, and other campus interviewers asked our conversation partners to talk about their spiritual and religious lives and how they impact their engagement with the Lawrence University Campus Community.

Together this collection of conversations tell the story of individual and collective spiritual lives at Lawrence University.  Our hope is that they will serve as a catalyst for more awareness and engagement around the spiritual components of our diverse identities.  The goal of this project is to help move Lawrence toward a robust and respectful conversation that invites spiritual and religious development and understanding.
