Yesterday, I had the privilege of participating in “Table Talk Luncheon” at American University’s Kay Spiritual Life Center. The topic was “Religion & Politics in the US: Young Evangelicals in National Politics.” My worthy counterpart on the panel was Tim Kumfer from Sojourners, with whom I even found a few points of agreement (you’ll have to listen to the audio to find out exactly which points).
Before a packed room of American University students, we discussed “hot button” issues like same-sex marriage, embryonic stem cell research, abortion, and the nation’s “right-left divide” and evangelicals’ involvement in politics. Although most of the audience seemed to lean left, they were gracious hosts, and I had a great time. Thanks to all the students who attended, and to the chaplains who organized the event.
I’ll post a link to the audio of the event here whenever it becomes available.
UPDATE (9/19): Here’s a link to the write-up on the event — it looks as if technical difficulties has kept the podcast from being made available.
