Event Details
Join in a dynamic conversation on being Christian in the public square in the wake of an historically divisive election. Rowan Williams states in this classic text, “Being Christian,” that “the Christian life is a listening life.” How do we set up spaces to listen to the convictions and concerns of those with whom wdisagree? What is the role of prayer in preparing for, participating in, and walking (in love) away from hard conversations? How can we practice evangelism in a country with such defined and defended tribes and segregated communities? After we establish norms for fruitful engagement, our time will be an open discussion for all participants. Bring your voice and wisdom to the challenge of being Church in anxious times. The Rev. Dr. Tricia Lyons, Special Advisor to the Dean at VTS, will host this conversation, offering prayers, theological texts, suggested hymns, and other resources for you to use as you teach and preach in times of political turmoil, through the January Inauguration and beyond. Offered by Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary. 3:00-4:00 p.m.
