UPCOMING EVENTS

Putting Jesus on the Ballot: Anabaptist and American Politics, Part 2 on October 15

Political tensions are rising, argumentation has replaced conversation, and divisions widen. How should we, as pastors and leaders, engage? How do we avoid the pull of partisan politics in order to create space for the Spirit to work reconciliation in our midst? Over three webinars, we will explore one perspective on how Anabaptist theology can create a different paradigm for engaging government without falling into the traps of fallen systems or partisan politics.

The webinar takes place in three sessions at 7pm Central time. The September 17 session is now available on YouTube.

  • Tuesday, October 15, 7pm Central
    Tensions: Seeing Beyond the Partisan Divide – Register Here
  • Tuesday, November 19, 7pm Central
    Vision: Policy & Possibility When Jesus is Lord (registration coming soon)
