Sunday, October 19, 9:00-10:00 am, Temple Bat Yahm Amphitheater You are invited to a lecture by Curt Pringle, former mayor of Anaheim and a member of Redeemer, on the topic of "Faith in the Public Square."
Christians are called not to hide behind the walls of their community but to take their new hearts, minds, and perspectives into the surrounding communities. As Abraham Kuyper contends, the believing community, gathered around word and sacrament, must radiate “beams of faith’s light into the realm of common grace”—into education, art, science, politics, business, economics, and the marketplace. As Jeremiah exhorted the newly exiled Jews in Babylon, “Seek the peace (shalom) of the city” (Jer. 29:5-7).
Curt will help us think specifically about how to love our neighbors by being engaged and informed citizens of our local communities. Join us Sunday morning October 19th to be encouraged and challenged to live out our faith in the public square.
