Christian Civility & Public Discourse

The One Foundation Dialogue Series resumed today with a panel discussion of “Christian Civility and Public Discourse.” During the course of another contentious presidential election process, the diversity of political opinion and opinions about other topics has drawn attention to the notion of civil discourse. For Christians, discourse about politics and other topics represents one of the many ways in which Jesus’ call to love others should be applied to our daily interactions with neighbors and even our “enemies.” This session will explores the opportunities and challenges one faces in demonstrating the love of Christ within the context of conversation and controversy.

Future events will be streamed live throughout the remainder of the academic year. This year’s theme is “Kingdom Treasures.” During each session, we will focus on discovering the unique worldview resources available within Christianity for a life of faith, hope, and love during a time that is marked by a global pandemic, political conflict, racial tension, and intense human suffering.

Each event will begin at 12:00 pm and can be found via the One Foundation Resources tab on We are excited to welcome you for this series!
