About the Event
How do Christians model integrity in politically divisive times? Can they charitably disagree when discussing weighty issues of faith and politics?
Christianity Today’s outgoing editor Mark Galli and The Christian Post’s former editor Dr. Napp Nazworth will discuss recent controversial events at their publications and offer suggestions for how evangelicals might navigate the current political waters. Afterward, they will participate in a conversation with Dr. Larycia Hawkins, Jeremy Samek, and the audience about 2020 politics and the evangelical conscience. Learn more about the speakers below.
