Americans United for Separation of Church & State Orange County Chapter

AU-OC Presents: Rev. Dr. Sarah Halverson-Cano

The Importance of Church/State Separation to Religion

Saturday, September 21st at 1:45 pm

Irvine Ranch Water District Community Room 
15500 Sand Canyon Ave, Irvine, CA

Too often, church/state separation is seen as an issue for the non-religious and its supporters are accused of being hostile to religion. Not only do many religious people support church/state separation, they often have specifically religious reasons for doing so. Government involvement in religion to them is not just unwelcome and inappropriate; it is an abuse of something they hold sacred. Rev Halverson-Cano will explore these issues and her own commitment to church/state separation.

Rev. Dr. Sarah Halverson-Cano is the pastor of Fairview Community Church in Costa Mesa, CA. She holds a bachelors from Chapman University, pursued a Ph.D. in the New Testament from Claremont Graduate University, left academia to obtain a masters of divinity and entered the ministry. She currently holds a doctorate in preaching from Chicago Theological Seminary. Highly influenced by Jesus' call to social action in pursuit of justice and peace and the Hebrew prophets Isaiah and Micah, Rev. Halverson finds herself drawn to justice issues, and compelled to fight for the rights of the oppressed. Her ministry at Fairview and within the larger community reflects this call to justice. Rev. Sarah has received accolades for her social justice work and commitment to community from the Orange County Labor Federation, the Orange County Human Relations, Women For: Orange County, and the Council on American and Islamic Relations.
