FURTHER EXPLORATION…WHO ARE WE?
JOIN US FOR OUR SUMMER ENRICHMENT SERIES: “RELIGION AND THE FOUNDING FATHERS”
This 3-part series, led by Hal Breitenberg, will examine the religious beliefs and practices of America’s Founding Fathers, including their views of Christianity and various denominations, along with their personal faiths and religious practices. We will learn about the Founders’ conceptions of God, history, and morality as well as how these views influenced their understandings of America, shaped their ideas about government, and were expressed in documents such as the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. In addition, we will discuss the importance of religion for several “forgotten Founders,” including women. Throughout the series we will consider the significance that religion and the Founding Fathers has today, both for religion in America and for the United States itself.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday evenings: August 2, 9 and 16.
From 6:30—7:30 p.m. in Duntreath Hall.
