Religion in Global Affairs – Martin Marty

Some will resent his praise of religion because they see religions by definition opposed to human good.

Thanks Seniors at James Island Center

Thanks Seniors
Thanks to the wonderful group that attended my talk at the Senior Center on James Island earlier today. It was a wonderful experience. There was even a former student from my teaching days at Charleston Southern. There were so many interesting questions and comments. As always I gained some new insights. I loved the one, “I thought about Our also as in child. I thought I am only one person, why am I praying, “Our Father” and not My Father?” That makes my point beautifully. You also bought lots of books. Thanks again.
The Senior Center is such a wonderful facility and Lisa Zobel had everything ready to go. She produced a flyer for the program better than the one I sent her. We can hardly wait for the center to open in West Ashley.
