Religion

Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, God has broken the power of all that is evil, in the world and in us.

Views

The strong feature of Methodism is the role of local people take for the fabric of church buildings and manses and for the handling of money. They share with ordained ministers the role of setting direction for the churches in a particular area or 'circuit'.

Membership

Member National Council Boy Scouts American. Vice president public information National Safety Council, 1960-1967. Member Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Connections

Married Victoria Wallace, June 28, 1923 (divorced). Children: Charles Wallace, Hugh McGinnis.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.
