The Gospel for Our Political Divides

A Saturate Webinar

At its core, the concept of “politics” involves people working together for a common good. But the term today seems about as far away from that as possible. How does the gospel of Jesus offer truly good news for increasingly polarized Christians, churches, and cities?
In this first “Gospel + Politics” webinar, Ben is joined by ERLC’s VP for Policy Travis Wussow and author/editor Trillia Newbell. We will hear their thoughts and answer your questions about how Jesus breaks down even this dividing wall, currently among the seemingly most divisive.
