A House Divided: The Elders Family’s Path Through Political Division

“Help us all to remember that we’re Christians first. We’re Republicans or Democrats…second.” – Nick Elders, Deacon, Calvary Christian Reformed Church

The Elders know something about life and love amid disagreement. Brothers Mark and Nick have often found themselves holding views contrary to their dad’s and their congregation’s. In a political season like no other, tensions have threatened to divide their family and church. For several years, Mark, Nick, and their father, Dale, have relied on The Colossian Way to help them navigate their disagreements. Join us for a free lunchtime webinar follow up to the recent The Wall Street Journal article, “Abortion, Guns, and Trump: A Church Tries to Navigate America’s Divisions”. The Elders will share additional insights into how their Colossian Way Political Talk small group faced hard political differences. Hear their unique story, and learn how your community can fend off divisions at home and church, without compromising your positions, while growing in love for one another.
