Conflicted Allegiance

Following Jesus in Election Season

It is time for Christians to be okay with talking about uncomfortable topics like politics.

THE ISSUE

Many of us inherited a Christian worldview that assumed the success of the United States meant the advance of God’s mission in the world. Others of us inherited a worldview where the Church was apolitical with a “We don’t talk about politics, we just talk about Jesus” mentality.

THE WAY FORWARD

Join us as we explore the theological roots of these perspectives, as well as a new way to approach this election season.

We've found that Christians want to talk about civic engagement as a response to our faith but often lack the language to help us navigate this, especially in a cancel culture where there's little room to say the wrong thing. What does it look like to have integrity in our faith when we're unsure of what to do or say to be effective?

In partnership with The Global Immersion Project, Project Peace is offering an East Bay-focused workshop that offers the language, tools, and actions to embrace a conflicted allegiance that tackles our faith in one hand and our U.S. citizenship in the other.

WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE

We all need tools to get comfortable talking about uncomfortable topics within our congregations. The workshop itself is a model for what this space can look like and will enable you to navigate this polarized election season with initiative and courage.

We'll equip you with:

  • A framework and language to understand how our faith impacts our civic engagement
  • A set of tools to navigate the 2020 election as Christians
  • Practical actions from others' experiences to take steps in your own life

PREPARE AHEAD OF TIME

Required: We don't want to waste anyone's time. In order to jump into the conversation with a shared language, we highly recommend watching this 22-minute video with reflection questions.

EXPERIENCE THIS IN COMMUNITY

Invite your friends, community group, or family to experience this workshop together and be each other's accountability. It's a great way to connect with loved ones in a new way - by learning, taking small risks, and asking hard questions together.
