Pastors' Dialogue: How Can Churches Bridge Deep Differences?

  • Central Presbyterian Church 7700 Davis Drive Clayton, MO, 63105 United States (map)

Christians are not immune to incivility and lack of empathy.  We too often settle into our own echo chambers and dismiss others who don’t share our beliefs.  Sometimes we do this to each other—failing to extend grace and charity to other Christians.  How do we discuss our deepest differences with one another, and recognize each other as image bearers?  How can we see other Christians as people rather than stereotypes?  And where can we find common ground without pretending that our differences don’t matter?

Featuring Claude Alexander, Luke Jernagan, Eric Stiller, and Tish Harrison Warren. Moderated by John Inazu.

With generous support from Central Presbyterian Church and the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics.
