"When 'Spiritual but not Religious' is Not Enough"
Lillian Daniel, senior minister, First Congregational Church, Glen Ellyn, Ill.
Before her time at First Congregational Church in Glen Ellyn, Ill., Lillian Daniel spent 14 years in Connecticut where she led two churches. She is the author of "Tell It Like It Is: Reclaiming the Practice of Testimony," which is the story of one church's attempt to get mainline Protestants to talk to each other about God. With Martin B. Copenhaver, she co-authored "This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers," a humorous and honest look at the ministry. Her lecture will address the question of "spiritual" vs. "religious" in contemporary culture and how we find God in all kinds of unexpected places, even the church. Daniel hosts the Chicago-based public television program "30 Good Minutes." An editor-at-large for the Christian Century Magazine, and a contributing editor at Leadership, her work has also appeared in The Huffington Post, Christianity Today, Leadership Journal, Books and Culture, The Journal for Preachers and in daily email devotionals available at ucc.org. In October 2010, she received the distinguished alumni award from Yale Divinity School for "Distinction in Congregational Ministry."
