You’ve heard it said that there are some topics we are never supposed to address in polite company. At the top of the list is “religion” and “politics.” But what are Christians to do when our calling is to engage public life with the good news of Christ? In the words of Abraham Kuyper, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”
To help us understand how public and political life is an important dimension of following Christ, New Covenant Church in Naperville is partnering with the Acton Institute to offer this year’s summer Culture Impact Forum titled Faith and Politics. We are delighted to have Dr. Vincent Bacote of Wheaton College delivering a lecture, followed by questions. In this cultural moment of encircling despair and cynicism, Dr. Bacote will answer such questions as “does attention to politics lead us astray from our Christian mission?; How do our beliefs help us to understand our place and purpose in society?; How might we love God and others more in our polarized climate?”
For more information, please contact the church office at 630- 357-4092 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is free and open to the public.
