If you’re like most pastors or church leaders, you’re probably facing difficult questions this fall. Questions like “How can I advocate for important issues without hindering my gospel witness?” and “What responsibilities do we have to engage in this current moment?” Jeff Pickering and Chelsea Patterson Sobolik welcome Daryl Crouch and Catherine Parks to the roundtable to talk about these issues and share about a new free resource from the ERLC, the Courage and Civility Church Toolkit.
This toolkit, with curriculum and sermon drafts, explores how Christians should think through issues of our day as they see the chaotic culture around us. It gives pastors and church leaders a helpful path to walk with their congregations through this polarized moment. Download your free copy today.
