    Religious liberty and tolerance are among the most central global issues facing us today. Too often scholars have

    approached them solely as philosophical questions or abstract universal imperatives, obscuring their meaning and

    significance within specific religious traditions. Any effort to deepen appreciation for religious liberty and

    tolerance while excluding religious voices is bound to fail. In conjunction with Calvin College, the Berkley Center is

    convening scholars and practitioners from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim backgrounds to examine and compare

    resources supportive of religious freedom and tolerance within their own traditions. The participants are among

    the contributors to a forthcoming book,Abrahams Children: Liberty and Tolerance in an Age of Religious Conflict.

    The conference, made possible through the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation, will conclude

    with an interfaith service in commemoration of September 11, 2001.

    Each of the panels will address the following questions:

    1. Historically, how has your tradition been exploited by opponents of religious liberty and tolerance? Does suchexploitation persist, and why?

    2. What are the major resources within your tradition supportive of religious liberty and tolerance? What do they

    add to dominant secular human rights discourse?

    3. How can interfaith dialogue and activism advance the liberty and tolerance agenda? What dangers and pitfalls do

    you see along the way?

    Washington DC 20002-4999




    From the very beginning to the very end of his Presidency, Ronald Reagan was guided by the first principles of the

    American Founding, especially the idea of ordered liberty. In the opening paragraphs of his first inaugural address

    in 1981 much of which he personally drafted President Reagan echoed the preamble of the Constitution, calling

    on We the people to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom

    America. Eight years later, in his farewell address to the American people, the President said that the American

    Revolution was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and

    with three little words, We the people.

    Under all circumstances, Reagan looked to the Constitution as his North Star. In his State of the Unionspeeches, Reagan referred to the Constitution more than any other president in the preceding 50 years anaverage of 16 times per speech. A survey of his presidential papers reveals 1,270 references to the Constitutionduring his eight years in the White Houseand another 113 mentions of the Declaration of Independence. Inthis forum, with two former Reagan cabinet members and two published Reagan historians, we will discuss howthe principles of The Founding and the Constitution provided the foundation for Reagans presidency and

    ultimately influenced his every decision.

    Project 4 Gallery is proud to present In Quest ofThe Sun, a solo exhibition of new work

    by DC artist Ellington Robinson.

    To Ellington Robinson, painting is a physical, psychological, and spiritual experience,

    which includes a formal process and a narrative approach. By contorting and layering

    collected materials such as travel documents, vinyl, record sleeves, and cassette tapes,

    Robinsons works evolve and embody his quest.
