Thursday began the 8 week God In America series at Pilgrim! We had 15 Pilgrims in attendance, and it was a great intergenerational mix. You are welcome to join next week’s session.
Our discussion focused on the first episode: the Puritans/Pilgrims and the Spanish/Portuguese Catholic relationship with Southwest (North) American and Central American Native American civilizations. Our discussion spanned what it means / looks like for religion to be public vs. private, to a conversation on how progressive Christians vs. conservative Evangelicals engage differently in civic life.
Next week, we will discuss the second episode/topic focused on America leading up to the Revolutionary War. This will include the 1st Great Awakening, the Declaration of Independence, and the First Amendment prong of Separation of Church and State.
In order to facilitate everyone’s ability to participate,
