Church & State Conference
In anticipation of our upcoming election season, many Christians are asking "Is there a Christian way to vote?" This conference will go beyond the "Christian voter card" to considering holistic ways of bringing our faith to bear in the public sector. We will explore the relationship between church and state, seeking to develop a Christian ethic for life in the public square.
This will include consideration of the church as a prophetic witness to Christ's kingdom amidst the kingdoms of this world. From being a good neighbor, to filling out your ballot, to confronting and collaborating on redemptive systemic and structural change, we will work toward a comprehensive way of thinking about how our Christian faith shapes our public witness as we engage our government and our communities.
