Humanist Nones in the Divinity School

This brief profile about “More Students, Secular but Feeling a Call, Turn to Divinity Schools” discusses those “religion: none” students who can be found at divinity schools around the country, especially those schools inclined toward theologically and politically liberal Protestantism, such as Harvard and Chicago Theological Seminary.  These schools “offer even atheists and spiritual seekers a language of moral discourse and training in congregational leadership. The traits appeal to nones who aspire to careers in activism, social work, chaplaincy or community organizing rather than taking to a pulpit.”  A two-kingdoms analysis might explore the similar 19th century movement in Unitarianism and its course of development.
