Dual Citizens: Living Between Two Kingdoms

What are the two topics we’re not supposed to talk about? Religion and politics. Talking about them together? Yikes… Many of us have learned the hard way to avoid these subjects because we’re either burnt out, frustrated, or cynical. We’re often left with a series of compromises leaving us feeling disappointed and hopeless. Should Christians go all in on politics? Should we walk away altogether?  Or is there another way? Jesus tells us to live like dual citizens- members of His Kingdom, defined by love and solidarity, yet also invested in the world we share with our neighbors. How do we do this? Join us as we explore how Jesus calls us to work towards mutual flourishing even amid a political culture that seems determined to turn us against each other.
