With the election approaching, many people are thinking about what role faith should have in public life. Here is an article written by Jordana Horn, an always insightful religion reporter at the Wall Street Journal , that was inspired by Can there be a Prophetic Spirit in America Today?, a recent discussion at the Museum between Cornel West and Susannah Heschel, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel’s daughter. Tell us your thoughts on the subject.
And while you're at it, come back to the Museum on September 17th for an in depth discussion of Religion and the 2008 election. It will be moderated by the Washington Post reporter Sally Quinn who is the founder and co-moderator of the Newsweek/Washington Post On Faith blog. Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, President of The Interfaith Alliance, and Rabbi David Saperstein, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism will also participate along with others to be announced. Thanks to the Interfaith Alliance and On Faith for co-sponsoring this event. Check back soon for more information.
