Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In our divisive and broken culture, we increasingly see people being canceled or publicly outed for one thing they said in the past or because of a single position they hold. Everything they have said and done is called into question, often leading to their public demise. One tweet or offhand comment has the potential to ruin one’s career or family, especially in the hands of those who seek to discredit someone. How do Christians navigate our increasingly diverse but divisive society? How do we model convictional kindness as we stand for truth and model gracious dialogue.

What you will learn:

  • How to engage differing opinions with truth and grace
  • How to respect those with whom we disagree
  • How to apply the gospel to pressing issues of the day
