Zoom Webinar

In the lead-up to the 2020 Presidential Election, this event seeks to cultivate a discussion about the nature of Christian witness and political engagement in our contemporary context.

Such a conversation begins with a basic presupposition that people of faith need not–and should not–strictly separate Christian life from political engagement. However, how we engage matters greatly. We will be discussing challenges to faithful presence in politics today, including the difficulties of loving our neighbors across lines of partisan difference and the challenges of our increasingly polarized political culture. Our desire for this event is that it will offer a grounded and hopeful vision of political engagement and prepare listeners for living together through–and beyond–this election season.

This event will be a webinar discussion between Justin Giboney, Michael Wear, and Cherie Harder, hosted by Travis Pickell, an Associate Director at Anselm House
Co-sponsors: Anselm House, The Center for Christian Study at UVA, The North Carolina Study Center, The American Enterprise Institute, and The (&) Campaign
