Adult Formation Class: The Voice of the Church in the Public Forum

Sundays at 10 AM

The first amendment of the U.S. Constitution states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.

For most of our lifetime the interpretation of this is the “separation of Church and State”, but this has not always been the case, nor has the exercise of Free Speech by religion been either entirely good, or entirely evil.

In this class we will examine key points in American religious history on the subject, and ask what was done well, what was done poorly, and what can we take for ourselves as we ask how we can act and speak in the public forum of our day as people of faith in Jesus Christ and as Anglicans.
