A House United – Being and Leading One Church in an Age of Division
October 24-26, 2018
Princeton Theological Seminary
The call and challenge to be a unified Church has always existed. Christ prayed “that they all might be ONE.” Our last national election season revealed and exacerbated divisions in our nation, communities, families, and churches. This seminar asks what Christian leadership and discipleship look like in a divided nation and explores how Christians on two sides of a great divide can stay Church together. Whether your congregation leans strongly left, strongly right, or big tent, join Allen Hilton for this seminar to explore how Christian communities might become God’s agents of healing, not only inside the church, but in a broken nation and world.
In this course, we will raise important questions about the shape of God’s help in our day – “#Resist vs #Unite” and “#Gradualism vs #Revolution, #WhatGoodIsTheLeft?! vs #WhatGoodIsTheRight?! With one eye on the discouraging history of Christian division, we’ll cast the other eye on the divine prospect of a Spirit-forged redemptive, robust, perspective-diverse community. Dr. Hilton will help participants engage one another in honest conversation about the questions they face, and offer them skills at preaching to complex contexts and facilitating cross-political conversations and relationships in their communities.
