Adult Christian Education: President Lincoln’s use of Presbyterian Theology
Saturday, May 8, 4:00 pm
Lincoln knew the Bible very well, though he never subscribed to a denominational creed.  The death of his son in 1862 led him to accept counseling from NYAPC pastor Rev. Phineas Gurley. Many of his colleagues noted the president’s frequent meetings with Gurley from February to August 1862. Coping with intense grief, Lincoln was also planning his most controversial decision of the war, proclaiming Emancipation. His communication strategy clearly built on his new understanding of God’s will as Gurley taught it. In so doing, Lincoln learned to express the most profound theological insight on the meaning of the war and altered the future of American Presbyterianism. This presentation traces the parallel tracks of Lincoln’s faith evolution and the impact on our church. John O’Brien will lead this class.
