Fuller’s president visited the regional campus October 26 - 29
Fuller’s regional campus in Sacramento, California was
treated to four days with Fuller President Richard Mouw as he visited the
Capital Christian Center church to speak and meet with alumni.
Dr. Mouw’s trip on October 26 – 29 began with an evening
alumni event where he spoke briefly on his main topic for the weekend,
On Saturday afternoon, Mouw delivered a lecture at Capital
Christian Center titled “Christian Civility in an Election Year.” He told the
audience that Christians need to nurture the right kind of zeal. He referenced
theologian Martin Marty, who said Christians should learn to be civil people
with conviction. Mouw noted that one part of being civil is to practice looking
at the “humanness” inside each person, because people tend to de-humanize
individuals with whom they disagree.
Dr. Mouw preached at three services at Capital Christian
Center on Sunday. His sermon focused on 1 Peter 2:15, which urges believers
to tell people about Christ with gentleness and respect.
The president’s visit concluded with a pastors’ lunch on
Monday afternoon. He explained how pastors can practically approach civility
within their own congregations by hosting conversations with people of
different faiths or of different opinions.

Dr. Mouw will visit
Fuller’s Northwest regional campus in Seattle, Washington from November 9 –
11. His visit will include a pastors’ lunch, alumni and friends reception and
preaching and teaching at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle,
