Faith and Politics: Justice, Mercy, and the State
September 24, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Questions of justice should matter deeply to all people of faith. But what is the relationship between divine law and human laws, and what role, if any, does the state have in these questions? Join our online panel discussion with Shadi Hamid, senior fellow at The Brookings Institution; New York Times columnist Ross Douthat; Jacqueline Rivers, executive director of the Seymour Institute; and John Huleatt, general counsel of the Bruderhof. Plough’s editor-in-chief, Peter Mommsen, will moderate. We’ll be discussing Plough Quarterly’s Spring issue, Faith and Politics, an online and print foray into the bigger questions we need to ask ourselves in a contentious election year.
This online event is hosted by Plough, and co-sponsored by The Seymour Institute, The Brookings Institution, and Breaking Ground. Please sign up here to view on YouTube.
