The fault lines that divide American society—divisions over race, politics, social issues and more—run right through the Body of Christ.
We quickly accuse each other of being swept away by ideologies and idolatries. It is harder and harder to understand how any “real Christian” can hold the viewpoints of the other side.
This webinar proposes a way to help us understand ourselves and our neighbor better, resulting (hopefully!) in greater humility and empathy.
IN THIS WEBINAR YOU WILL:
- Discover the four stories that shape us & inform our faith
- Learn how prayerful self-reflection of our stories can help us navigate the deep divisions in the church
- Discern how to build the kind of community required for healing.
Join Our FREE Webinar on December 9 @ 1 PM Eastern!
