Being a Public Theologian and Activist as a Pastor

Friday, 2:00pm | Open

As a leader (pastor, organizer, facilitator) of a faith community how do you balance being an activists about certain topics, ideas and issues? How do you live authentically your passions knowing that others in your community don’t hold your same passions or beliefs?
Is it possible to be pastor and activist?
These are the kinds of questions we will engage in this lively, interactive session.
