Religion

The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

Politics

All human life is created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

Views

Language of a derogatory nature (with regard to race, nationality, ethnic background, gender, sexuality, and physical differences) does not reflect value of one another and contradicts the Christian teaching.

Membership

Member National Association Women Artists, Liverpool Arts and Crafts Guild, Daughters of the American Revolution, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Alpha Arts Guild, Alpharetta, Georgia.
