Homecoming Chapel – “And the Two Shall Become One” – Dr. Donald Oswald ’75

Viewing work and spiritual formation as two distinct activities, we try with little success to make them consistent. If we can recognize that they are not two things but that they are already one, that they rise from one common impetus, we may find that both are enhanced.

Donald Oswald, director of diagnostics and research at Commonwealth Autism Service in Richmond, Virginia, is EMU’s Alumnus of the Year for 2014. Under Oswald’s leadership, the clinic has become a model in the Mid-Atlantic as a training site for interdisciplinary teams that wish to provide an assessment for children who might be diagnosed with autism.
