How can politics be faithful? Christians in the United States are of many different minds. Sometimes, church can feel hyper-partisan. Other church folk want to disengage from politics. Are there really only two sides to community issues, and do we always have to disagree? How do faith and fear shape our response to the world as we seek to live in love as followers of Jesus? How can our participation in civic life be grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
As the US approaches “Election Day” in the election season already underway, these upcoming “Conversations at Briarwood” with prominent Evangelical leaders Hunter Baker and Shane Claiborne will help us explore these questions together. The divide between evangelical and mainline Christians in the US can sometimes seem like we’re the Republican and Democratic parties at prayer. How can we get beyond partisanship to the task of crafting new forms of public faith?
Conversations will be online, using Zoom. For full details and to register for October 22: https://www.facebook.com/events/330047694962676
