Workshop sponsored by the Hugh and Helen Mogensen Fund for Church Revitalization

When it comes to the growing number of people who have never experienced religious community, the church may be answering questions that nobody is asking. How do we welcome the “spiritual but not religious” while worshipping with integrity? Making a case for why religious community matters is more important than ever.

Lillian Daniel co-authored This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers with Martin B. Copenhaver. Noteworthy for its humor and honesty, it has been read by clergy and laity alike. Her first book, Tell It Like It Is: Reclaiming the Practice of Testimony is the story of one church’s attempt to get people to talk to each other about God. An editor at large for the Christian Century Magazine, and a contributing editor at Leadership Journal, her work has also appeared in The Huffington Post, Christianity TodayRelevant MagazineBooks and CultureThe Journal for Preachers and in the daily email devotionals available at, with over 20,000 subscribers. She has taught preaching Chicago Theological Seminary, the University of Chicago Divinity School and at her alma mater, Yale Divinity School, where she received the 2010 distinguished alumni award for “Distinction in Congregational Ministry.”
