Upcoming Discussions for Congressional Staff to Touch on Religious Liberty

Congressional staff members will have several opportunities in the coming weeks to attend special talks touching on religious liberty sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The series of lunch-time talks on Capitol Hill titled "What hath Rome and Geneva to do with Washington?" will focus on how governments, civil society and individuals work together and how people of faith can add to the conversation. The series will be unique as it draws from both the Catholic and Calvinist social thought traditions.

Topics include "Why Government? The Flourishing of Persons and Institutions"; "Subsidiarity and Sphere Sovereignty"; and "Social Architecture: The Parts and the Whole."  Here's more from the event flier:

The Office of the Chaplain of the House of Representatives is hosting a brown-bag lunch series exploring how subsidiarity (Catholic social thought) and sphere sovereignty (Calvinist-inspired) might sort out the ways government, civil society, and individuals can best relate to each other. Come and discuss these key concepts of social architecture, their history and theological roots, and the light they cast on contemporary policymaking.

Stanley Carlson-Thies of the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance (IRFA) and Br. Thomas More Garret, OP, of the Dominican House of Studies will lead the conversations. As founder of IRFA, Stanley Carlson-Thies is a leading voice on religious freedom issues. The Cardinal Newman Soicety is a member organization of the IRFA.
