No matter what you believe or don’t believe “faith in the public square” is something you probably have an opinion about. Here’s your chance to sound off! The subject is wide open but here are some questions if you need help getting started:
Should a person’s faith impact their vote? What place does faith have in the public square today? Is it possible to detect the fruit of the spirit in public figures? Does our theology help us decide what voices to give weight to and what voices to ignore or do we tweak our theology in order to support our political and/or social preferences? How can we be faithful to our own beliefs and convictions and still do what is best for everyone? Is our faith a good reason to create legislation? Should we be concerned about the faith of our leaders? Does connecting faith and politics do more harm or more good? Do you think there should be more or less religious talk coming from those who hold or are seeking to hold political positions?
Share your perspective about faith and politics on your blog this month. Post your links in the comment section of this post by 6pm on Tuesday October 9th and a link list will be published on Wednesday October 10th.
