What is the relationship between religion and politics and the church? The role of faith is crucial to public policy. It can serve as a weapon to divide and create fear, or as an inclusive force to advance justice and equality. Join us as we read articles and explore the role of faith in politics and public policy.

This group will be led by Christopher West. Chris is a member of St. Paul’s and works as a state government lobbyist in capitol square.

SMALL GROUP is FULL. REGISTRATION is CLOSED.
