Ms. Melissa Morral, Vice President for Enrollment Services, welcomed two bloggers to the Hill in July. Based in Rochester, Chris and Luke started the blog “Exploring the Burned Over District” in 2011 to track their explorations of sacred spaces across western and central New York State. The name of the site derives from the region’s being known as the Burned Over District from the mid-nineteenth century into the early twentieth on account of the rise and fall of many spiritual and religious movements in the area.
More generally, the blog reflects a growing trend in how Christians are connecting with other Christians through digital media, and in how they are reading and experiencing the space of spirituality.
