The Supreme Court: At a Tipping Point?

President Donald J. Trump is likely to nominate several justices to the Supreme Court, shaping the future of our country and, in particular, how we govern ourselves for decades to come.

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: The Supreme Court and Religious Communities: Holding America Accountable?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observed that “The conscience of the country must be both the Supreme Court and the Religious Communities.”  How are these, as well as other civil entities, informing the moral compass of the nation today?  In this week we will seek to discern how our social conscience is faring.
