From its earliest days, America's democracy has been nurtured by an informed citizenry who pride themselves on their love of learning and cultivation of wisdom. You can continue this tradition in your community by sponsoring a sermon series, adult education study, or book club that focuses on America's values and virtues and how they intersect with the values and virtues of your faith tradition. In governing, a separation of "church and state" is respected, but in practice, they share much in common.
