Training Ground 2024: Disciple Making in a Politically Charged Culture
“Politics” have become increasingly divisive and polarizing. But what are “politics” really? The way we think about political engagement influences how we interact with the world around us. Kaitlyn Schiess will share how we can think about politics as more than republicans and democrats, but rather the means by which we pursue human flourishing in our communities. She will help us consider a biblical theology of political engagement and how, from that perspective, we can participate graciously in our communities and nation.
Kaitlyn Schiess is an author, speaker, and perpetual theology student. She is the author of The Ballot and the Bible: How Scripture has been Used and Abused in American Politics and Where We Go from Here (Brazos, 2023) and The Liturgy of Politics: Spiritual Formation for the Sake of Our Neighbor (IVP, 2020). She has a ThM in systematic theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and is currently a doctoral student in political theology at Duke Divinity School.
