We live in politically divided times and often preach to politically divided churches. We proclaim a Gospel that’s a challenge to both the Right and the Left- and so we ask: how can and should we include political themes in our preaching?
What ought we to say?
What ought we to avoid?
How do we preach when we like who is President/in charge?
How do we preach when we don’t?
How do we make room in our preaching for those in our community who may be at a different place than us?
What does it mean to be a faithful, prophetic voice to our culture regardless of who is president?
