The Soul of America – March 29, April 19 and April 26
In the presidential election year of 2020, this three-week series will focus on the presidency and leadership by addressing some fundamental questions: who we are, what we stand for, and where we are headed. BHPC members Bill Frick and Bob Deans, who both have first-hand knowledge and experience with US politics and government, will provide their perspectives on various social, political, economic and environmental issues facing our democracy and humanity.
March 29: “The Barabbas Doctrine.” Bill Frick, former Majority Leader of the Maryland House of Delegates, will explore how elected officials respond to the will of the people – even when the people are imperfect sinners.
April 19: “The World We Create: A Message of Hope from a Planet in Peril.” On this Earth Care Sunday, Bob Deans, director of Strategic Engagement at the Natural Resources Defense Council, will help connect the dots between our changing climate, what we read in the headlines and how we can do our part to be good stewards of all creation and leave our children a livable world.
April 26: “Integrity, Competence and Unity: The Essential Pillars of Presidential Leadership.” Bob Deans, former president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, will discuss the meaning of the modern presidency, its place in our democracy and the call of citizenship, faith and government by the people.
