I see someon has AP US History like me SAME exact question so in

faith was the established church. Ministers received financial

support from taxes. There wasn't much religious tolerance, and

religion was a huge part of everyday life. The Halfway Covenant

England started to shift away from strict Puritanism. They started

to preach about good works, which was associated with the Anglican
