Threading this needle is no easy task, so for our next Breakpoint Forum, the Colson Center has invited Denise Grace Gitsham, author of Politics for People Who Hate Politics, and Eric Teetsel, Vice President of Government Relations at the Heritage Foundation, to guide us through these concerns. Please join us on August 13 at 7PM ET for this free online event hosted by Colson Center president, John Stonestreet, for a time of discussion and livestreamed Q&A. We'll consider questions such as: 

  • Can a Christian participate in politics in good conscience?
  • Is a Christian required to vote?
  • Should we vote for the lesser of two evils?
  • Is voting “third party” a waste of time?
  • Are we sinning when we support flawed candidates?
  • What’s a constructive way to cooperate with people from other parties?
  • Should Christians form their own party?
  • How can we get involved at a local level?
  • Should Christians be single-issue voters?
  • How will we know if we’ve made politics an idol?
  • What’s a non-negotiable for a Christian when it comes to politics?
  • Does it matter if I vote when my area is entirely for another party?
  • ... and many more!

Breakpoint Forums offer the opportunity for attendees to participate in a live Q&A with the panelists. Come with your questions!
