The Obama Doctrine: American Civil Spirituality - OnFaith

The Obama Doctrine: American Civil Spirituality - OnFaith | american spirituality | Scoop.it
President Obama has overseen the decline of American civil religion. He has also helped foster a new public faith: American civil spirituality.
Julianne Thomson's insight:

"America is on a journey, a perpetual pilgrimage, never arriving at a settled place. At our best, we seek deeper justice, greater knowledge of ourselves, and elusive wisdom as we try to live in the world and remain faithful to our original principles. “Today we continue a never-ending journey,” President Obama stated, “to bridge the meaning of those words [of our founding texts] with the realities of our time.” We are political sojourners."


-Obama
