Part 2 – “An American Conscience:  The Reinhold Niebuhr Story” on Sunday, June 11, 2023

Serenity Prayer was authored by Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr who wrote and spoke on the intersection of religion, politics, and public policy.  Ethicist, commentator, and professor at Union Theological Seminary in NYC for more than 30 years, Niebuhr became more than a celebrated public theologian, he became an American conscience.
“Niebuhr was always present on my mind when I was president and facing the constant threat of nuclear war.”
                            – former President Jimmy Carter

The remaining three films are under an hour which will leave time for discussion.
