In polite company, one is not supposed to discuss religion and politics. The August issue of The Lutheran Witness dives into both.
Dr. Robert Benne discusses the one King who rules the two kingdoms, while the Rev. Dr. Joel Biermann shows how a person’s faith informs his or her vote.
The Rev. Dr. Korey Maas gives suggestions for carrying on political conversations with friends and family, and Peter Slayton explains how online conversations should reflect a Christian’s identity as a child of God.
Finally, Andrew Egger gives advice on how to remain “in the know” without getting lost or sidetracked by media bias.
The intersection of religion and politics might make for difficult conversations, but God’s people sit at the feet of Christ and hear His Word. In Him, we receive the one necessary thing.
