HDS Voices

Sierra Fleenor

Troubled by the tension between academic life and spiritual life, I came to HDS looking for answers. Through my courses I began to explore the ways in which the academic and the spiritual can be integrated. Whereas they once seemed like divergent paths, vocation and calling now feel synonymous.
