Faith in the Public Square -- A Conversation


With the first Democratic Party Presidential Debate just a few days in the past (I didn't watch, but did catch some of the analysis), and two Republican Party Debates in recent months (I didn't watch them either), it is clear that politics is in the air. So how do we address the question of religion and politics in our current context?  What role does faith and religion have in public life?

If you live in Michigan perhaps you'd like to join me on November 7th for a few hours of conversation about faith and politics and our ultimate allegiance.  We'll talk politics, religion, allegiances (the Lord's Prayer), and ways of being engaged, such as through community organizing. Below you'll find the information you need to attend.  This is sponsored by STEM, a ministry of the Michigan Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Michigan Conference of the United Church of Christ.

I have written about the topic in two books: Faith in the Public Square and Ultimate Allegiance: The Subversive Nature of the Lord's Prayer (both published by Energion Publications).  It should be a good conversation, just days after many of us go to the polls!
