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!
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing one another in love
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
The six-session course challenges us to move from the "what" of ideology to the "how" of biblical virtue, adopting the posture of a disciple, with Jesus as our Teacher
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.
