Highlights from The Politics of Neighborly Love
On Thursday, Sept. 19, more than 400 people from across the U.S. gathered online for “The Politics of Neighborly Love: Christian Citizenship in a Divided Age.”
In Denver, our friends at Made to Flourish hosted a group of pastors for a socially distanced watch party at the Asterisk building, while Joanna Meyer, Ryan Tafilowski, and Dustin Moody lead the event from the Unbridled Events Center.
With a keynote from Justin Giboney and a panel discussion featuring Gov. Bill Haslam (R-TN), Scott Sauls, and Stephanie Summers, we considered the role that faith plays in our partisan politics, and how to engage in faithful, constructive dialogue in this political season.
Here’s what attendees are saying:
“I loved the emphasis by all speakers on the primacy of God and that we need to be humble and remember we are all created in God’s image.”
“This was by far the most professionally produced — and personally impactful — online event I have attended during the COVID crisis.”
“This gave me much needed perspective and will help me love my neighbor better.”
“I was challenged to seek to understand others’ viewpoints and to engage with them in civil conversation on sensitive issues.”
Take a look at some photos from “The Politics of Neighborly Love.”
