Politics, Economics, & Believers At Odds with the Present Order
March 17, 2018 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
At odds with the present order
A critical review of liberalism—left, right, and center
Yes, we want to be good neighbors and engaged citizens. Yes, we “seek the welfare of the city” where we live, spiritually, as resident aliens away from our heavenly homeland. (Jeremiah 29:7) But a large and growing chorus of Christians from all traditions also decries the easy relationship the church has developed with our current political and economic framework.
Why? What exactly is liberalism—classical right, progressive left, and popular middle?
Why is it problematic for so many thoughtful Christians? What are the ideas and practical consequences at the root of the discontent, increasingly shared by Catholics, Reformed, and Orthodox Christians—often joined by their Jewish and Muslim friends?
And what are the viable options for those committed to justice, peace, order, and the common good?
Catch up with the conversation, and join in.
