Establishment Debate: Rules of Civic Engagement
Check this out.
Patrick Henry is going too debate Thomas Jefferson on early issues of Separation of Church and State!
It’s a re-enactment coming November 7, 2010 to the Cincinnati area, and it might be just the ticket for fun, and maybe education, for some of our readers.
Bill Barker is a professional actor and 17 year re-enactor of Thomas Jefferson at Colonial Williamsburg. He has been featured in historical documentaries, is involved in Williamsburg’s education program and makes public tours. Mr. Steer has been a local Patrick Henry re-enactor for the past five years. They will team up to bring a little flavor of Colonial Williamsburg to Ohio.
On Sunday, November 7, 2010 they will be presenting “Establishment Debate: Rules of Civic Engagement” which deals with the early issues of Separation of Church and State. The subject of this debate is presented by the Williamsburg Foundation every year in April during their Religion Month programming.
Following the debate, “Mr. Jefferson” will open the floor for Q&A; with audience participation and after that, a panel discussion with local scholars followed by a mix and mingle coffee reception.
Sounds like great fun.
