We live in increasingly divisive times. From politics to sports, the gift of human difference can quickly become a chasm of serious discord and division. What does it mean for good Christians to disagree? How do we do so faithfully? Should Christians protest? How should they do so?
In this free online course, you can get answers from two prominent and in many ways, opposing camps. Social activist Ed Bacon believes Christians should be at the cutting edge of social protest. Ethicist Stanley Hauerwas believes Christians best shine their light by living faithful lives, as people distinct from the world. Their views come to light in these four video presentations:
- Finding Christ in Conflict
- The Nature of Dissent
- Witness and Dissent
- How We Dissent
This online course right will remain open and free through Monday, September 25 – that means you can take it for free anytime, 24/7, during that time period.
