The Lotus Center for All Faiths presented the PBS film: God In America: A Nation Reborn & a New Light on President’s Day, Monday, February 18, 2019 at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville. God in America explores the tumultuous 400-year relationship between religion and public life in America. The six-hour series tells the story of how religious dissidents helped shape the American concept of religious liberty; how religious freedom fueled the rise of evangelical America; how social reform—from abolition to civil rights—galvanized men and women to put their faith into political action; and how religious faith influenced conflicts from the American Revolution to the Cold War.
Combining documentary narrative, historical analysis and dramatization, the series brings to life the conflicts, the dilemmas and the critical decisions made by the men and women who battled to establish America’s unique relationship between religion and politics.
