Mind Matters Lecture

On Monday, May 22 at 10:45 AM we will watch Faith and Freedom in the Civil War. During the 19th century, the slavery debate was influenced significantly by biblical passages to support one side or the other. Both sides came to interpret scripture in ways that would support their views. Ms. Barbara Franco will explain how those interpretive principles still have great influence on today’s society. Ms. Franco is a noted scholar on the history of faith in America.
