October 7th – Faith and Politics – A Civically Engaged Church

Many of us grew up believing that politics has no place in the life of the church, and is strictly a private matter. While it’s true that partisan politics has no place in the church, it is also true that we are called to be a public church and to fully engage in the political process through voting and advocacy. In this forum, hosted by the Social Justice sub-committee, we will look at the scriptural and theological foundations of our baptismal calling “to strive for justice and peace in all the world.” We will talk specifically about the importance of voting and how our faith informs our decision making process. This forum is part of the ELCAvotes! Initiative at Good Shepherd.
