Today on the First15 Podcast we begin a multi-week series on finding peace in the political season. This is one of the most divisive political times we’ve ever seen, and so we want to have honest and open conversations about walking in peace with God and others as we journey through it.
To kick off this series, we’re having a conversation with John Mark Comer, the pastor of Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon, and the author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. John Mark offers so much wisdom in this conversation, I’ll be going back to listen again and again.
We discuss things like…
-The difference between a theological issue and a political issue
-How not all political issues are weighted equally
-How to have a healthy engagement with news and social media
-Our increasing need for deep community
Talking about politics can be really tough, but this may be one of my favorite conversations I’ve had about it.
