LC chaplain heading to White House

Tuesday August 2 2011

 

Chaplain Stephanie McLemore and Andrea Roth, Hillel coordinator, will be at the White House Wednesday for President Barack Obama's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge.

"Andrea and I are excited to meet with other Spiritual Life leaders from around the country to talk about plans for the year and to hear from government officials about the role they expect us to play on college campuses toward encouraging service and interfaith dialogue," Rev. McLemore said.

"As the year-old Hillel group gains strength on campus, and the campus welcomes additional Muslim students this fall, this marks an important partnership on campus, recognizing all people and their individual journeys. Lynchburg College is a Disciples College and wants to celebrate the Disciples' commitment to ecumenical and interfaith dialogue, by being a Disciples College for all faiths."
