Description

What does it look like to offer hope in the midst of a world that breaks our hearts? The Christian social imagination is a dance between the now and not yet, between a broken creation we still experience and the kingdom-come for which we long and pray. This session will address why a Christian commitment to public life demands both prophetic critique and discerning participation. We’ll consider why a Christian liberal arts education is an apprenticeship for such public engagement.
