Church of the Brethren on Lieberman

  • October 21, 2011

University of La Verne Chaplain Zandra Wagoner recently gave welcoming remarks at the Church of the Brethren as part of Homecoming Weekend festivities. Entitled, “Moment for the University of La Verne,” Wagoner emphasized how grounded the university is in its core values, even as it looks forward toward the future. To learn more about what Wagoner described, read on!

“I think we all can sense that there is something very exciting on the horizon for La Verne.  I believe Dr. Lieberman will help the University deepen and focus our mission and purpose as well as draw out and shine a light on our distinctive qualities.  This includes making a tangible connection with the distinctive legacy of the Church of the Brethren, and acknowledging its role in shaping the University’s commitment to peace and justice, its culture of inclusivity and welcome, and its vision of education that serves the wider world.  This legacy also sets the stage for attention to spiritual aspects of student’s lives, including active reflection on and engagement in life’s big questions, the interconnected nature of life, social responsibility, interactions across differences, and the deepening and expansion of one’s worldview or spirituality.  We are fortunate to have Dr. Lieberman’s leadership.  I am personally thrilled to work with her, and feel inspired by her vision, integrity, depth, and energy.”

-Zandra Wagoner ’89
