motives-titlemotives e-magazine is the flagship publication of Marsh Chapel, an academic religious and theological journal in the spirit of our mission to preach a gospel of grace and freedom, a responsible Christian liberalism. As Dean Robert Allan Hill noted in his introduction to the inaugural issue, “motives will aspire to transcend political and theological differences and remind us that we are, as we have ever been, bound together by a common hope for the future of this world.” We hope that these theological, ethical and religious reflections on issues of moment at the time of their publication will provoke deep and careful thinking and spiritual inspiration in the spirit of Daniel Marsh and his commitment to the importance of “intellectual and experimental religion” in the life of the University.
