Conjuring the Perfect Exorcism – Alumna and Student Advise on Horror Flick

The Conjuring movie posterWhen it comes to horror films, a dash of holy water, a priest waving a cross, and some unintelligible Latin usually provide enough legitimacy to make the most demonic possessions believable to the general population. But when brothers Chad and Carey Hayes set to writing their most recent screenplay, they wanted an accurate portrayal more than dramatic. Diana Walsh-Pasulka (M.A.

Voter Registration

Schools in most states and the District of Columbia must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to their students. This voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

Escaping the Ivory Tower: Practical Theological Scholarship

The motto of the Graduate Theological Union is “where religion meets the world,” but what does it mean? It’s easy to draw a line between what is “sacred” and “secular” (often whatever is not “sacred”), but that’s not quite it either since religion is part of the world we know and the world interacts with religion. Rather, our motto emphasizes where faith traditions purposefully encounter people and events, sometimes in unique ways — describing this encounter as crossroads, bridges, and dialogue.
