A movement called Christian Nationalism was in the news before the attempted insurrection on January 6th, but since then, there has been a proliferation of articles on the subject. It is thought of by many as an extreme movement inconsistent with Christian teaching and practice. Many prominent evangelical pastors have denounced it. However, there are many pastors and churches that regularly weave together themes of Christianity and nationalism within their worshiping communities. An op-ed appeared in Newsweek on March 22nd asking if there was really anything wrong with Christian Nationalism, eventually drawing the conclusion that if defined correctly, the answer should be no. The author suspects (probably correctly) that millions of Christians would identify the United States as a “Christian Nation,” but asks us to wonder what they mean by that? We’ll think about this and more as we begin a conversation on this topic April 7th. No pre-reading is required, but in addition to many articles, books on the subject include: The Power Worshippers by Stewart, The Founding Myth by Seidel, and Taking America Back for God by Whitehead. Join us Wednesdays on Zoom at 10:30. Email Matt Falco for more information. Join us Wednesdays on Zoom at 10:30. For more information, email Matt (matt@maxpres.org). I hope you’ll join us on Zoom for some insightful conversation.
