“Civil Civics” Justin Classen

To hear the sermon click the arrow below.

James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute, has argued that the 2016 presidential elections both contributed to and underlined one of the major problems facing American politics today: a collective inability to engage in civil civic discourse. Indeed, the mutual and increasingly vocal distrust and contempt between various factions of “liberals” and “conservatives” has helped to polarize our political system to the point of paralysis. In this talk, Justin puts our current moment in both global and American historical context and discusses both the need for and avenues toward restoring civil civic discourse.
