Faith in Democracy
September 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Please join Democracy NC, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and the NC Council of Churches in rebuilding and defending “Faith in Democracy.” Each session will include answers to the following questions:
Legally, what can faith communities and faith leaders discuss about the social/political issues? Morally, what are leaders feeling compelled to do? What are the real risks, especially to minority faith and non-faith groups? How is this work rooted in standing up for racial justice?
Why is almost all current state and federal legislation so extreme? How does it threaten our own religious freedom?
How can leaders enable their communities, both inside and outside of the church, to see “political” issues through the lens of faith and become advocates for the good of all, especially for “the least of these”? What does meaningful, ecumenical coalition look like?
