From the Values and Voices website:
American Values, Religious Voices: 100 Days, 100 Letters is a national, nonpartisan campaign created from the conviction that scholars who study and teach our diverse religious traditions have something important to say about our shared American values. This project aims to contribute constructively to our national discourse, reaffirming who we are as Americans and modeling how we can learn from one another and work together for the common good.
I hadn’t heard of this project before today. I plan to read through the 2021 letters this week.
Dr. Clark-Soles was my favorite professor in seminary. When I teach Bible studies and classes to churches, I channel my inner Clark-Soles. Here is her letter to Biden Administration and Congress.
Imagine if we learned to weep with one another. If we learned to walk humbly before God, hand in hand with those in need. Greater things, indeed.
