Love No Matter What: Politics, Sex, Race and the Way of the Cross
March 24, 2016
Jesus challenges his followers to do something that is never easy and always countercultural: love your enemies (Matt. 5:44). And in today’s polarized world, where entrenched battle lines are drawn on issues ranging from sex to politics to race, the call to love the “other side,” no matter what, is harder than ever. On Mar. 23, 3016, over 500 joined us at Biola University for a conversation about what it means to model the compassion of Christ and love those across the divides of culture, race, gender, politics and more. The evening was co-sponsored by the Office of the President, Center for Christian Thought and the Center for Marriage and Relationships.
Speakers included: Stanley Hauerwas (theologian/Professor Emeritus, Duke Divinity School), Sister Helean Prejean (Author, Dead Man Walking), Barry Corey (President, Biola University), Caleb Kaltenbach (author, Messy Grace), Christena Cleveland (social psychologist/Professor, Duke Divinity School).
