Those of us who live and work in Montgomery County have seen many of our friends and neighbors confused or even alarmed by the past election. This can be both a barrier to spiritual conversations and an opportunity to engage in thoughtful discussion on the state of our nation in light of a biblical worldview. Understanding how our faith informs our approach to government is something Christians in any democracy need to wrestle with in order to gain a biblical foundation that anchors us as the social and political climate around us continues to change. When we address the culture in ways relevant to the problems people face today, we will see people respond. Society has largely lost its moral bearing. Jesus is the Answer, and He has given us the keys to open hearts, renew minds and make disciples.
Please come and invite a friend to join us this Tuesday, December 19, to hear Scott Spages, East Coast Affiliates Manager for the Salt & Light Council discuss the importance of informed Christian citizenship.
- When: Tuesday, August 18, 6:45-8:00 AM. Our group time starts at 7:00 AM sharp, but we request that you arrive by 6:45 AM to allow time to get your bagel & coffee and spend some time to catching up with each other.
- Where: The Community Room at the Einstein Bagel on Firstfield Road & Quince Orchard Blvd in Gaithersburg MD.
The mission of the Salt & Light Council is to train and equip churches to establish Salt & Light Biblical Citizenship Ministries that will defend and promote life, natural marriage, our constitutional and religious liberties. Scott works with churches, help their members rediscover the joy and privilege of being a citizen of the United States – under God – and preserving, as salt does, our Judeo-Christian Heritage.
