Religious Pluralism in the Midwest (In Progress)

The Midwest is often portrayed as a homogenous flyover region, when in reality, it is anything but. In Ohio and surrounding states, people of diverse backgrounds meet and mingle, and sometimes entangle and clash. Since moving to Ohio in 2012, I have explored the multitude of religious traditions and spiritual practices thriving in the region, as well as the ways that they intersect – both with American culture and with each other.
