Nathaniel G. Higgs, a retired director of the Southern Union Public Affairs and Religious Liberty association, will be at the Seventh-day Adventist Church Saturday during the 11 a.m. worship hour.

His sermon, titled "God Bless America," will kick of the church's annual Religious Liberty campaign, which runs through February.

Higgs has served the Seventh-day Adventist Church for 41 years in education, ministry and administration and is an ordained minister and certified teacher. He retired from the Southern Union as director of public affairs and religious liberty in 2006 and has specialties in school board responsibilities and resolving religious discrimination in the workplace.

His interests include Bible studies, woodwork and gardening.

He will also be presenting an afternoon program titled "America: Christian Nation or Pluralistic Country."

He will talk about the intent of the founding fathers and how the modern trend of bringing religion into politics is dangerous and prophecy-fulfilling. There will be time for questions and answers.

The program is free.
