Description

A.R.T.S., the student society for Arts.Religion.Theology.Spirituality invited audience members and artists to share coffee, cookies and each other’s company in a celebration of the artistic gifts of LMU students. This reception was an opportunity to get to know students, faculty, staff and visitors who share a passion for the arts as an eloquent way to examine our most pressing and complex questions.

Theme of the day:

students.talk. convivencia .

If we truly share life with others, does that mean that “we” have to become like “them”? Or are there things which we simply cannot give up if we are to remain ourselves? At LMU, how do we balance our Catholic, Jesuit, and Marymount identities with openness to people of other faiths or no faith at all? In Los Angeles, how do we respect different kinds of diversity – religious, ethnic, sexual, economic – without deteriorating into separation from each other? In this new century, is religion destined to divide us? Or can it unite this broken world?
