Presenter: Bruce AshfordSuggested Donation
How can a pastor lead his congregation to be faithful political witnesses in our secular age? This webinar seeks to answer that question, exploring the proper relationship between religion and politics, and between the church and state, before going on to show how we as Christians can leverage the Bible’s teachings to give a powerful public witness even from the cultural margins.
