Week Five :: July 22–29

The Supreme Court: At a Tipping Point?

The new American president is likely to nominate several justices to the Supreme Court, shaping the future of our country and, in particular, how we govern ourselves for decades to come.

  • What impact have presidential appointments to the Court had on major Court decisions?
  • What potential appointments are looming in the 45th president’s first term, and what impact can those appointments have on major cases before the Court?
  • How has the balance of power among the three branches of government changed throughout the Court’s history?

 

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: The Supreme Court and Religious Communities: Holding America Accountable? 

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observed that “The conscience of the country must be both the Supreme Court and the Religious Communities.”  How are these, as well as other civil entities, informing the moral compass of the nation today?  In this week we will seek to discern how our social conscience is faring.
