Christian Political Imagination: The Ethics of War, Violence, and Peacemaking

November 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As we enter another Election Season Americans on the right and the left push and shove to capture political victories that will shape our nation—What’s your strategy for entering the struggle? Many Christians take part in the political  process without reflecting on what it means to be politically active as a Christian. In this course, Greg Richards will explore   ways that participants can re-imagine political engagement. He will include explorations of the Old and New Testament’s political-matrix and philosophy as well as a survey of pivotal Christian thinkers throughout history. Finally, participants will envision how Christian theology may speak to contemporary politics. This class will occur in the heat of the race for the White House, making it timely and as relevant as ever.

This class is THREE Wednesdays:  November 2nd, 9th, and 16th, 7-9 p.m. $35

About the Instructor:  Greg Richards is the Director of College Missions for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas and the interim Pastor at Covenant Baptist Church in San Antonio. Greg earned an MTS from Duke Divinity School where he studied Christian Ethics. He lives with his wife Abby and their four children in San Antonio.
