As Christians, we love God and seek to follow him. At the same time, nothing shapes us and tugs at our loyalties quite like the place we live.  Join us for timely discussion with four contributors from the soon to be released book, Kingdom and Country: Following Jesus in the Land That You Love, where a collection of leading Christian thinkers and practitioners take a holistic approach to considering the questions of patriotism, nationalism, and where our ultimate loyalties must lie.

Bring your questions and join us for an open panel discussion with four of the book's contributors
