Church and State

Share it Please
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is part of the United
States Bill of Rights that expressly prohibits the United States Congress
from making laws "respecting an establishment of religion" or that prohibit
the free exercise of religion, laws that infringe the freedom of speech,
infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to peaceably assemble, or
limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Campaign seasons bring allegations that members of the clergy have crossed a
line set out in a 1954 amendment to the TAX CODE - a document separate from
The First Amendment - that says nonprofit, tax-exempt entities may not
"participate in, or intervene in . . . any political campaign on behalf of
any candidate for public office." Nonprofit entities may participate
in/intervene in social issues, however.

Peace & Blessings,

Rev. Beverly Craig, Senior Minister

Center for Spiritual Living - La Crescenta, California

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
