The Great Spiritual Migration
Lumunos Fall Keynote Event
October 10th | 7-9 pm ET
Released in 2016, Brian McLaren's book The Great Spiritual Migration offered an insightful look at how Christianity and other organized religions can become places where people learn how to love God, themselves, others, and the earth. Join us for a conversation with Brian McLaren to uncover how the messages from this book apply to where we find ourselves in 2022.

“People who are learning to love their neighbors, themselves, and the earth will not find it hard to learn to love God, because God will not be for them a doctrine or theory separate from or inconsistent with what they already love."
This event will address the growing spiritual movement away from rigid sets of beliefs and dogma to a focus on love and compassion. The “spiritual but not religious” community is finding common ground with many religious people who yearn for different and more inclusive answers. Woven into this transition is the growing number of "spiritual activists" who are dedicated to healing the planet, building peace, overcoming poverty and injustice — and collaborating with all faiths to ensure a better future for all of us. The underlying image of God is a renewing Spirit at work in our world for the common good.
