God's Kingdom and Earthly Politics

God's Kingdom and Earthly Politics

June 17, 2024 7:00pm

Contact: Rev. Canon Jeff Bailey

In light of the upcoming November 2024 elections, and the anxiety that many feel about the increasingly political fragmentation of American society, we are excited to welcome Rev. Dr. Matthew Kaemingk to discuss God’s Kingdom and Earthly Politics: Being the Church in a Divided Nation. During this online event, Rev. Dr. Kaemingk will help us think about:

  • What it means to be faithful in this political moment and not fearful
  • In what ways our membership in the Kingdom of God should impact our individual political allegiances and decisions
  • How should we preach, teach, and think about these matters
  • How we interact with fellow church members who view us with suspicion because we don’t emphasize their political leanings
  • What Christians with different political views need to hear and learn from each other
  • What forms of political theology might help us
Our aim is to create a hospitable and charitable space where we can think honestly about political concerns and questions, and how to be the church in this moment.
