Explore the Tradition of Faith & Ethics in the Rough World of Israelite Politics!
There is still time to attend the class on “The Believer in Politics: a Study of I & II Samuel” with Dr. Richard Zeile, Co-President of the State Board of Education, and Pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Taylor.
Can a sincere Christian, or any person of integrity, participate in politics? And why do politics seem to turn up even in the office, the church, or the family? These and other questions of immediate concern will be discussed in an evening study of First and Second Samuel at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Taylor Wednesday, July 26, from 7:00 p.m. To 8:30 p.m., and continuing for 11 weeks.
The Old Testament books of Samuel chronicle Israel’s shift from a federation of tribes led by judges to a monarchy under Saul and David. David is the traditional exemplar of God’s man in the fields of war and government, and his conduct offers many suggestions as to how the Believer, the sincere adherent of the Christian faith, ought to approach the complexities of war and politics.
