We’ve all heard it: “Don’t talk about religion and politics.” Whether you have avoided conversations or severed relationships, reexamine how you can put Christ first in your life and not allow politics to take precedence. According to author, Eugene Cho, Christians should engage with politics since politics inform policies which impact people. This class will help you review your actions to see if you may have fallen short in your walk with Christ due to politics.
