Religion in the Public Square:
A conversation about how religion affects politics and how politics affects religion.
Please join us for the second annual GPC Community Town Hall. We’ll hear from two White House veterans about the role of religion in their lives and in their administrations, and about how religion is used and sometimes abused by politicians. How has religion’s role changed during their time in politics? And what is the appropriate role for it to play?
Mike McCurry was the chief White House spokesman for President Clinton and is now a Partner at Public Strategies Washington, Inc., and a distinguished professor at Wesley Theological Seminary.
Michael Gerson was a speechwriter and a policy adviser for President George W. Bush and presently works as a political columnist and senior advisor for the ONE Campaign, an organization committed to ending extreme poverty.
Susan Page is the Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today, hosts Capital Download and guest-hosts The Diane Rehm Show, and also serves as an Elder at GPC. She will moderate the discussion and a question-and-answer period.
Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
