The Village Square, a bipartisan organization hoping to improve the civility of the political dialog, begins its new Dinner at the Square season "Faith, Politics & Neighbors" on Tuesday, September 23 in the company of George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
"On Church & State: Faith and the Founding Fathers" ventures back to the birth of our nation to seek wisdom from America's founders on how to navigate the rough waters where faith and politics intersect today.
Joining the debate is Dr. David M. Abshire, former NATO Ambassador and Cabinet member under Ronald Reagan, currently President of the Center for the Study of the Presidency in Washington, D.C. and Dr. John Corrigan, Chair of the Department of Religion at Florida State University, where he specializes in American Religious Studies and Religious Conflict.
Amid the raging disagreement on evolution, school prayer and holiday celebration, the discussion will look at both sides of the divide on faith, avoiding the typical partisan cherry picking of founders' quotes and beliefs.
This program is part of the "Dinner at the Square" season Faith, Politics & Neighbors... "ground well-trodden by angels and fools". Find information about the season generally and the other dinner programs HERE.
