Come listen to Sam Gregg and other Acton Institute affiliates engage in this important discussion.
What has Jerusalem to do with Washington D.C.? How should we understand the connection between Christian faith and American Liberalism? Some say it is a necessarily antagonistic relationship, others that it is a fruitful partnership that has been orchestrated by God himself, and still others that it is a relationship in tension, bearing both good and bad fruit. While this question has been with us since the beginning of the American political experiment, our current cultural season seems especially fraught with difficulty and division with regard to how to think about our most important identities, loyalties, and duties. With this in mind, the Faith and Democracy in America conference will consider this question with the intent of fostering meaningful conversations about what it looks like to do justice to both God and Caesar.
The conference is sponsored by the Acton Institute and the Henry Institute for the Study of Christianity and Politics.
