Jane Austen and the Liturgies of Ordinary Life an Online Conversation with Karen Swallow Prior
On Friday, May 7th we will welcome author, historian, and Trinity Forum Senior Fellow, Ron White to discuss the themes in his soon-to-be released work, Lincoln in Private. Lincoln did not have a diary but, he developed the habit of writing reflections and ruminations on little slips of paper. These notes, which Lincoln never intended anyone to see help us understand the depth of Lincoln’s character and thinking and introduce us to the private Lincoln behind the public Lincoln. We now get to look over his shoulder to see his innermost thoughts as he grappled with some of the most challenging moments in our nations history. We hope you’ll join us to learn from Lincoln and consider our own internal lives and the importance of being a person of character and integrity even when no one is watching.
