Adult Education: Understanding Christian Nationalism

  • Date: Sunday, October 22, 2023
  • Time: 9:00am10:00am
  • Location: Library

Christian nationalism is a political ideology and cultural framework that seeks to merge American and Christian identities. In this day when both American identity and Christian identity are undergoing massive shifts in definition and meaning, the reappearance and rise of Christian Nationalism (CN) is an alarming, reactionary response. The subtitle of Andrew L. Whitebread’s new and important work, American Idolatry, gets at the heart of the issue: How Christian Nationalism Betrays the Gospel and Threatens the Church (Brazos, 2023). In addition to Sunday morning classes, the issue will be explored in two sermons in October. We’re also planning opportunities for conversations in the evening (look for dates). And we’ve invited the members of Grace A.M.E. in Catonsville to join in the discussion. CN subscribes to a particular understanding of who is “in” and who is intentionally left out or pushed to the margins, who belongs, and who doesn’t.
