Can religious faith protect us from giving politics too much power over us, and can our belief systems give us the resources to navigate our deepest disagreements without inducing violence toward one another? This discussion will give a Christian and a Muslim, who happen to be great friends, an opportunity to reflect critically on our political discourse and the future of democracy. In a moment when our politics threaten to be the only thing that matters, Kaemingk and Hamid imagine a better path: one where religious people steward politics, not the other way around.Join us at 6 PM CST to listen to our speakers and for our Q&A session!
Dr. Daniel Bennett, Assistant Director of Center for Faith and Flourishing, will join six other panelists 3 pm EST (2 pm our time!) to discuss what Muslim civic engagement looks like, Islamophobia in the U.S., and the possibility of building interfaith coalitions between Muslims and Christians.
Join the Center for Faith and Flourishing in welcoming David French and Eric Metaxas to John Brown University’s campus on September 8th from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm. These prominent political voices will engage in a discussion that is sure to be thought-provoking. This event is free, but RSVP only. RSVP below!
