Ron White signing copies of Lincoln’s Greatest Speech
The Abraham Lincoln Bicentenial began in Kentucky in February. Although the event at Lincoln’s birthplace on February 12 was snowed out — Laura Bush was to be the speaker — I appreciated the opportunity to speak about “Abraham Lincoln’s Journey of Faith” in Louisville. The event was jointly sponsored by the Faith and Politics Institute and the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. On February 10, I spoke about the public Lincoln as we explored the meaning of his Second Inaugural Address. On February 11, I spoke on the private Lincoln by exploring the meaning of his “Meditation on the Divine Will,” a private memo he wrote for his eyes only that was discovered after his death. The photos above give a sense of the two meetings. To see additional photos from the event click (here).
