Come, hear and discuss our religious leaders’ perceptions concerning religion’s role in the public sphere. The Orange Clergy Association welcomes you to the 2016 “Scholar in Residence” program to take place at the Orange Congregational Church, 205 Meeting House Lane on April 17th. A reception will begin at 4:00 pm, with the program beginning at 4:30 pm.
This year, our program will be a clergy forum on the topic, “Mixing Religion and Politics: When Should Religious Leaders Speak out about Political issues?” Are religious organizations best “seen but not heard” in the public sphere? Is there a place for a religious voice in a presidential election?
