Multifaith Council

The Multifaith Council supports the Julie Esch Hurvis Dean of Spiritual and Religious Life and the staff of the Center for Spiritual and Religious Life.  The council includes students and employees from the University community. Members of the council do NOT represent particular student organizations, but they interact closely with them.  The council constituted to include representatives from diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds, including atheism and humanism as well as a variety of spiritual practices. 

The Multifaith Council meets regularly to accomplish the following:

  • Provide advice and council to the Dean of Spiritual and Religious Life
  • Engage in interfaith dialogue among the members of the council
  • Envision, plan, and provide a multifaith program for the campus community once a term

To apply to be a member of the council, please complete this form

TAIZE

Taize worship services are a partnership between Lawrence and All Saints Episcopal church. Taize worship services are ecumenical Christian services that follow a rhythm of simple chants, silence, and scripture.  These meditative services take place in the candle-lit sanctuary.  The next service is May 21 at All Saints Church.

Intersections

Intersections are an opportunity to explore the spaces where our spiritual lives and work/study/activities intersect.  Various persons from across campus lead a three or four week series that is open to any member of the Lawrence community. While Intersections are grounded in a particular tradition and experience, the explorations are open to all regardless of background. We will usually follow a pattern of one large introductory session with an invitation for a smaller group to make the commitment to go deeper in a 3 - 4 week experience.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of working with Dean Morgan-Clement to explore an intersection, please set a time to talk about your idea.

Our most recent Intersections program was, Buddhist Meditation.
