Christianity and American Politics
How can Christians navigate an increasingly contentious and polarized political environment? Join Westmont Political Science Professor Tom Knecht as we explore the intersection of faith and American politics. The September 30th lecture, entitled "Polarization and the Pews," will take an empirical look at how many Christians approach politics. The following week's lecture, "Shrink Your Core," will explore how Christians can become more effective participants in the political process.
A light lunch will be provided.
For childcare, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 4th.
