Why do people think that Christians are not compassionate? Is there a way to change that narrative? Monday we look at the role of the church in the community with former national director of Operation Blessing, co-founder of Convoy of Hope, and co-founder of CityServe International Dave Donaldson. Dave will walk through some of the roles that only the church can play in our community and how it is so important that we do not neglect our duty or leave our post.
Tensions are rising as more and more States enact pro-life legislation, some even calling for widespread boycotts of Alabama and its businesses. How are we to engage this conversation of protecting life with those who have already decided that this is a women’s choice issue? Is there a way to move beyond the passion of politics to get back to communicating truth with love? Join the conversation Monday as we explore this timely topic with Brad Mattes from Life Issues Institute.
