New York Times columnist David Brooks will preach at two services at the Washington National Cathedral on Sunday, February 12. The subject? Brooks hasn’t yet replied to a request for an interview, but the cathedral points to a sentence in a February 3 column and says they’ll “try to answer it together”:
Are we still the purpose-driven experiment Lincoln described and Emma Lazarus wrote about: assigned by providence to spread democracy and prosperity; to welcome the stranger; to be brother and sister to the whole human race; and to look after one another because we are all important in this common project?
He’ll preach at 9 and 11:15, and you can watch the 11:15 service live. Brooks’s appearance is part of the cathedral’s “Second Sundays” series.
