In the U.S., the church and state are separate. But are they? How do our values shape our policy and our choices at the voting booth?
Join SpokaneFāVS and three local panelists to discuss the separation of church and state at this upcoming forum (Coffee Talk) at 10 a.m., Aug. 4.
- Julia Stronks, political science professor at Whitworth University, who wrote “Conservative Christian Bakers, LGBT Couples and the Supreme Court“
- Methodist pastor, the Rev. Deb Conklin
- Kathryn Lee, also a political science professor at Whitworth University
The event will be at Saranac Commons, 19 W. Main Ave. and all are welcome.
If everyone who reads and appreciates FāVS, helps fund it, we can provide more events like this. For as little as $5, you can support FāVS – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
