Rethinking Faith and Politics in a Divided Age

Stream or download the audio recording from this breakout session titled Rethinking Faith and Politics in a Divided Age with Jonathan Leeman that was delivered at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. Should church and state remain separate? Yes. Should churches align themselves with political parties? No. But is your church political? Absolutely. Is the gospel political? Profoundly. Is the public square a battleground of gods? One hundred percent. The goal of this session will be to rethink the relationship between faith and politics, and then to apply that rethinking to our divided cultural moment. How should churches navigate our increasingly divisive waters? When should pastors address politics? How do we help our members share the Lord’s Supper with people who voted differently in the last election? How do we not subvert our church and its gospel to a political party or movement, while also speaking when Christ calls us to speak?
