July 13 - We will be watching the documentary "Purple." At a time of immense division, PURPLE tells the story of Americans with opposing viewpoints confronting their disagreements head-on and discovering the concerns and experiences that lie behind each other’s positions. Filmed in rural Wisconsin and Iowa – in a swing region within two bordering swing states – PURPLE presents a rare political conversation that uplifts, provokes, and inspires while going toward the heat of passionate political differences. As the midterm election fans the flames of already-volatile divisions, PURPLE offers a vision for what a healthy public debate on fault-line issues might look like
July 20 - We will look at biblical guidance for having civil conversations, even when we have different beliefs on a subject. We will look at scripture and discuss what informs us: Does theology/scripture inform our opinions, decisions, and actions? Or does a political party or person inform us?
July 27 - We will look at three different social issues/concerns and see how and where Christians can be Biblically informed and hold a variety of perspectives.
