Rev. Linda Morgan-Clement, Julie Esch Hurvis Dean of Spiritual and Religious Life at Lawrence University, presents “Imagine More” Friday, April 28 in the fourth installment of the college’s 2017 cultural competency series.

The presentation, at 11:30 a.m. in the Warch Campus Center, is free and open to the public.

John Lennon famously sang of an imagined a peaceful world void of nations, heaven, hell, possessions and religion. While his longing for such a peaceful world resonates with many, most of the world’s population could never envision  such peacefulness without religion and spiritual practice.

Morgan-Clement will lead a discussion of the ways individuals can use diverse commitments and spiritual practices to imagine more than a world without those essential components of many cultures and communities.

The final presentation in the 2017 series will be May 26: “Lesson’s from the Trenches: Activism for Social Change in the New Millennium” led by seniors Max Loebl and Guilberly Louissaint.
