"On Civics and Civility"
Thursday, January 23rd 6:30–8:30 PM (Fellowship Hall)
All are welcome
Our Winter forum will aim to equip us in understanding and embracing a biblical vision for civic engagement among followers of Christ and citizens of heaven.
All are welcome to register and attend. Participation in discussion at the event is reserved for those who have read the material attached in the confirmation email (about 12 pages of content).
At the event, we’ll consider questions such as: How does our identity in Christ and our belonging to his church shape the way we pray, the way we vote and advocate, the way we think and talk about politicians and political issues, the way we interact about politics online, the way we engage people who hold different positions than we? What peculiar temptations do we Christians face during election seasons, and what might it look like to “stand the test” throughout 2020 and beyond? What will it look like for our church to pursue gospel-centered unity in these matters amidst our various diversities of thought, political leaning, background and experience, and stage of life? What are some good resources for ongoing reflection and engagement on these matters?
