Abraham Lincoln: Theologies of American Anguish.
Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Aupperle. Lay Leader: Jon Dreazen.
Our speaker will focus on Lincoln’s childhood experience of religion, how Lincoln’s theological concepts were shaped, and how his faith deepened during tragedy. How did Lincoln feel about God As Being, prayer as listening, the Bible as a source book, and the church as concern?
“Jack” Aupperle is a retired Methodist minister now living in Oley, PA. He is also a college professor with connections to St. Vincent College in Latrobe and Seton Hill College in Greensburg. He hosted a long running show, “Faith in Today’s World,” on WTAE-TV. Jack founded United Ministries in Higher Education, an ecumenical consortium which provides ministry for State related campuses. Besides all that, Jack loves the outdoors and is a pilot.
