Jesus for President

We are currently doing a book study of "Jesus for President: Politics for Ordinary Radicals" by by Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw.

The book and discussion is NOT about "baptizing" any political party as "Christian," but rather about how Jesus engaged his world , including the politics of his day, and often turned political terms and ideas on their ear to talk about something radically different.

This election season certainly has put politics on everyone's brain. Regardless of your political views or the presidential candidate your voting for, this book and discussion will perhaps help us explore a new way to look at both "faith" an "politics" as followers of Jesus.
