On the Road in September

The summer was a productive one.  I wrote a few essays, finished a book manuscript, and am in the process of completing some consulting work.  Now it is time to think about the new semester.  In addition to teaching the first half of the United States survey and our department's historical methods course, I will also be hitting the road for a few speaking engagements.  If you are in the area stop by and say hello.

On September 5, 2012, I will be speaking to the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg, PA on Was America Founded as a Christian Nation: A Historical Introduction.  As far as I know, this meeting is only open to Rotary members.

I head to Durham, NC on September 9 and 10 where I will be speaking at the "Bible and the Public Square" conference at Duke University.  My talk is entitled "Does America Have a Biblical Heritage?"  The conference is free and open to the public.  It is sponsored by the Duke Center for Jewish Studies.

On Sunday mornings in September you fill find me at the Gettysburg (PA) Presbyterian Church where I will be doing a three-part series on Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?  Learn more here.

On September 17, 2012 I will be at Woodberry Forest School in Virginia meeting with history department faculty and lecturing on Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?

And finally, on September 18th, I will be at Bucknell University in Lewsberry, PA.  I will be speaking in some classes and giving a lecture on Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?  Details are forthcoming.

John - Have you done any event at Mid-Town Scholar in Harrisburg yet? Would you want to?

Glad you'll be coming to Duke. Schedule permitting, I hope to make it to some of this conference, including your session.

So jealous of you going to Woodberry Forest. Until last year, I lived 15 minutes away from Woodberry and would have loved to come and hear your lecture. My father is an alumnus (1959, but don't tell him I told you!)
