This small group study meets on the second Tuesday of each month for five consecutive months, beginning Tuesday, November 10 at 6:30pm. Using Eugene Cho's book, "Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian's Guide to Engaging Politics," Rev. Jamie Lively will facilitate discussion to help us reimagine what it means to be Christlike in a politically polarizing environment. Space is limited to the first 14 registrants.
About the Book
According to Eugene Cho, Christians should never profess blind loyalty to a party. Any party. But they should engage with politics, because politics inform policies which impact people.
In Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian’s Guide to Engaging Politics, Cho encourages readers to remember that hope arrived—not in a politician, system, or great nation—but in the person of Jesus Christ.
With determination and heart, Cho urges readers to stop vilifying those they disagree with—especially the vulnerable—and asks Christians to follow Jesus and reflect His teachings. In this book that integrates the pastoral, prophetic, practical, and personal, readers will be inspired to stay engaged, have integrity, listen to the hurting, and vote their convictions.
