Faithfulness in a time of political upheaval
October 16, 2022 @ 9:45 am - 10:50 am
Park Street’s Fall 2022 Christian Formation Series
How does theology inform faithful engagement regarding politics? With increasing politicization and social divisions, Christians find themselves in need to understand the role of theology and the church toward a faithful political presence. This seminar series aims to highlight key features of a Christian theology that informs Christian faithfulness in a time of political upheaval. This series does not endorse any candidates or political parties, but aims to help Christians think theologically.
