Embracing the Golden Rule!

Our partner the National Institute for Civil Discourse is rolling out a major initiative this coming Sunday, November 3. Here’s an excerpt from the web page describing the initiative:

On Sunday, November 3, 2019, exactly one year before the national election, Christians from a wide range of theological and political views will take action to express their concern about the polarization in our country and affirm the need to apply Christian principles to our political discussions. Congregations that participate in Golden Rule 2020: A Call for Dignity and Respect in Politics will reflect on Jesus’ teaching that we “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and pray for our country. Many other faith traditions also teach some form of “The Golden Rule,” and we welcome all who would like to join us in applying this principle to our politics. Participants will explore ways that they can apply the “Golden Rule” in their political activities between now and the 2020 election. 

We have written a Golden Rule Living Room Conversation to give those who wish to an opportunity to reflect upon what it means to follow the Golden Rule in their lives.  We hope you will join us Sunday, November 3rd for an online Living Room Conversation to reflect on what it means to follow the Golden Rule in our lives and our political activities.  Sign up here.
