We welcome Dr. Art Wright and Dr. Mark Biddle to lead our 2020 Winter Lecture Series.  How we disagree and how we treat those with whom we disagree says a lot about who we are and what we believe.  With political turmoil boiling over and partisanship at an all time high, does the church’s witness still offer the world an alternative?  Or have we succumbed to the same temptations that have led our nation to its current standoff?

On January 29 Dr. Mark Biddle, professor of Old Testament will offer two current case studies in which people disagree – public support of mass transit in Richmond and the childhood incarceration – and offer a way forward in which Christians can listen to one another and to what is at the heart of an issue.

The more we listen to others, the more we know them, understand them, and can love them like Christ would have us.
