Taking note of an historical day | Connecting spirituality to civic engagement | Mark Lagon and the Global Fight against COVID
Today, history is made.
That statement is true every day.
So, what’s of note today? Today, the first woman in the history of America lies in state at the nation’s capitol. It is also the first time a Jewish-American lies in state.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is only the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court and she will be buried next week in Arlington National cemetery beside her husband, Martin, who died in 2010. Her death serves as an ignition for many but it is also the consummation of a life now ended. Death raises temporal questions but it also raises questions that are existential and eternal.
Carmen talks today with Matthew Hawkins and Mark Lagon at the intersection of headlines, politics and how the concerns of the world are the concerns of our God – and therefore, our concerns as well.
