Embedded in all of our days, weeks, and years are opportunities to grow deeper in faith and closer in community. And we often take advantage of this special, transitional time of the year to commit to new spiritual habits—to devote time to God and to our spiritual growth.
We have an astounding number of faith resources available in this community among our faculty, staff, students, and guests. So this year, I am launching a spiritual life podcast and blog that will make those resources more widely available across our five schools, in hopes that we can better support and connect to one another in our spiritual lives. It is my hope that the regular messages may encourage and teach you something new on your commute, afternoon walk, or lunch break.
—Sara Barton, University Chaplain
Today's spiritual life podcast features four Seaver College seniors. Listen in as Sara asks students, Caroline Sisson, Matthew Pastor, Jared Lee, and Allison Lee to reflect on their spiritual lives and how they are processing recent interruptions to their senior year.
Steven Zhou (Seaver ’15 and ’17), shares three primary lessons learned from gaining a Christian higher education at Pepperdine University.
In this podcast, University Chaplain, Sara Barton talks to Olivia Robinson (Seaver College, 2020) and Hope Mueller (Seaver College, 2019) about their spiritual journeys. Olivia reflects on her recent Pepperdine TEDx talk and her hopes for love as a strategy for reconciliation. Hope talks about what it was like to be the first female Christopher Parkening classical guitar student and how her Christian upbringing was stretched and affirmed while at Pepperdine.
