As ambassador of Fuller, President Mark Labberton takes the occasion of his travels to speak with a broad spectrum of leaders on issues at the intersection of theology and culture. Our new FULLER studio podcast Conversing will capture his conversations with these leaders on topics at the heart of Fuller’s mission in the world.
The inaugural episode of Conversing seeks to address the current political climate and the upheaval within the evangelical community in response to it. Much like the rest of the electorate, the Christian community is searching for answers in an election that seems unable to provide answers: How should the church vote? How should the church constructively discuss the election?
Part 1 of the first episode addresses these questions with a reflective discussion on political civility between President Mark Labberton and President Emeritus Richard Mouw, noted scholar and theologian for his work on convicted civility. Both address the role of theology within the current political landscape, the forthcoming election, and the challenges of being Christian people who are seriously thinking about and responding to the politics of a given moment, particularly at a time in the United States that seems fraught with difficulty for Christians.
In Part 2, available soon, Drs. Labberton and Mouw welcome Dr. Vincent Bacote, Associate Professor of Theology and Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics at Wheaton College, as they delve more deeply into political civility and virtues of political leadership.
