Rev. Henry Knox Sherrill, the first president of the two-day-old National Council of Churches, rejects the idea that there can or should be any sort of separation between the secular and the sacred.

Sherrill says:

"There cannot be a nation under God without there being first churches under God with all that implies in intellectual and spiritual strength and discipline.

There can be no artificial division between the sacred and the secular. The churches, if they are expressions of the purpose and will of God, cannot be limited as some would declare to special fields of worship. For if worship is real, then action must follow — for all of life belongs to God."
