We need to radically recenter on Jesus.

Christians have lost their way when it comes to the intersection of faith & politics. It’s time to reframe our political identity as we take the lead in healing what’s broken. Jesus’ call is clear: We are to be salt and light in this world. Come be equipped and encouraged as we prepare for the true party to come. We’ve saved a seat for you!

What is The After Party?

The After Party is a collection of resources designed by the non-profit Redeeming Babel to help you move towards better Christian politics. Our video course, book, and worship music were designed for pastors & people who know there's a better way to "do politics." As you engage with our materials, you’ll be equipped & encouraged to do the hard work of engaging across differences, reframe your political identity in light of the Gospel’s promises, and focusing your heart & mind on the “how” of relating to each other before the “what” of political opinions.

The After PArty

The After Party Book

This paradigm shifting book is designed to complement the course. Read it beforehand to discern if the course is a fit for your needs — or read it afterwards to go deeper on a Jesus-centered approach to politics.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Are we just too different to get along?

It doesn't take much to sort ourselves into "us" and "them" or to focus on just how wrong "the other side" is when it comes to the topic of the day. What does God tell us about engaging through our differences?

Why is there so much yelling?

Once upon a time, we used to be able to live, work, and fellowship with people who may not vote like we do. Is there a way to have real, embodied conversations even when we disagree?

But I thought we were friends...

Churches, families, and friendships have been upended in this unstable political climate. Have you lost church members, struggled with your Elders, or mourned the loss of an old friendship?

What we do

Reframing the Christian political identity

Designed for the exhausted, the hurting, and the faithful, resources from The After Party help shift our political identity away from the "what” of political positions and towards the "how" being centered on Jesus. We start with political conflict in Jesus’ day, explore how we got here, and chart a path forward that redirects our focus away from short-term partisan victory and towards the lasting peace of God, in whom all things hold together.

How versus What

Jesus teaches about the “how” of political engagement more clearly than the “what” of specific parties, policies, or politicians. The Jesus “how” is summarized by the Micah 6:8 triad of humility, mercy, and justice.

The True Us versus Them

“Us versus Them” mentality opposes the “mind of Christ”  and camouflages our true spiritual enemy: dark “powers and principalities” that seek to divide humanity.

The After Party

Our deepest fears and hopes will never be answered by the victory of any political party or politician but rather only by the wedding feast of the Lamb, the return of our King Jesus.
