New center spotlights religion in politics and culture
“Danforth centers hope to set tone for civil religion” © 2010 Religion News Service. Used with permission. October 28, 2010
Just across from the Gephardt Institute for Public Service at Washington University [in St. Louis], employees are moving into a new center named for another legendary Missouri politician.
The John C. Danforth Center on Religion & Politics, launched last year with a $30 million gift from the Danforth Foundation, officially opened its doors on [October 26] with an inaugural speech at the university’s Graham Chapel by journalist and historian Jon Meacham.
The proximity of two centers named for former Democratic Congressman Richard A. Gephardt and former Republican Sen. John C. Danforth is emblematic of what Danforth anticipates the new center will do for the tenor of political conversation in the country.
