Religion in the Public Square: 
Intersection of Faith and Politics

 April 12, 2014   

 9:00 am - Noon

 Register Now

Cost: $40

Presenter: Donna Matteis, ESQ. 

This seminar will look at the legal bases that separate
church and state. It will also explore how religion has
played and continues to play a role in politics in the
United States. Finally, while exploring why Christians
have sometimes been reluctant to bring their faith to the
public square, we will examine how Christianity calls
 us to participate in political dialogue.
