July 3, 2018 – Faith & Politics: Patriotism and Freedom
Season 11, Episode 27
Picnics and cookouts with family and friends, lakeside – riverside – poolside to beat the summer heat, and fireworks galore – – but, there’s even more to Independence Day than just these things. On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, Independence Day, and the meanings of patriotism, freedom‘ and American Exceptionalism. Tomorrow, the United States will celebrate a uniquely American holiday – the fourth of July. Let’s pause for just a few moments this evening to consider what we really mean when we talk about patriotism – and also when we use the word “freedom.” Will our sacred texts and traditions provide us any guidance as we prepare to celebrate Independence Day? Our conversation about faith, patriotism, freedom, and American Exceptionalism – that’s coming up on this Friends Talking Faith.
