"Our focus is on how to lead good lives and make a positive difference with our families, community, and the world without being required to buy into the dogma of religion." said Lawton.

Ian Lawton is the leader of the progressive spiritual community, “C3 Exchange”, located on the shoreline of Grand Haven, Michigan. A professed “New Atheist”, Lawton spoke to the Inclusive Spiritual Community about core values which they have agreed to support, and how that plays out in the modern world. The community is made up of people of all faiths and those of no faith. They are organized around a core set of values such as inclusive spirituality, activism, sustainability, wellness, celebrating gender, sexuality, creativity, interspirituality, and community. "Our focus is on how to lead good lives and make a positive difference with our families, community, and the world without being required to buy into the dogma of religion." said Lawton.

Appearing last week with Lawton was the charming musical duo, Channing and Quinn, who have just released a new Holiday CD, “Paper Snowflakes”.
