WHAT: Fractured: Rebuilding the Church's Witness in a New Political Climate
WHEN: Tuesday, January 24, 2017 | 7PM CST, doors open at 6:45PM
WHERE: TBD, but on the campus of Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL
RSVP: No RSVP necessary. The event is open and free to the public and the campus community.
LIVE BROADCAST: This event will be live broadcast starting at 7PM CST on the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism facebook page. However, we encourage you to join us in person if possible, as we will also take on-site Q&As as time permits.
WHY: This past election season revealed some deep divides, and deeper wounds, among Christians. The way many Christians and Evangelicals have responded both in words and deeds throughout the election season has left many wondering how we can rebuild our testimony, witness, and walk in the world. Or can we? Join us for a critical discussion on the political, cultural, and social fall-out of this past election season and how we can begin to rediscover what it means for the Church to be the Church. The panel discussion will be followed by a time of Q&A.
