If you have been online in the last week at all, you have probably noticed that everyone and their cousin has commented or blogged about the situation with Chick-fil-A. August 1st has come and gone, so for our next Living in the Tension gathering we want to take some time to discuss how we move forward from this point. When something like this comes up again, how do we tangibly live out our faith and engage others that we disagree with? Are boycotts or counter protests effective in changing the landscape? What would make a difference?
We will be meeting on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120 on August 7th at 7pm. We hope you’re able to join us to share your thoughts and discuss how we can constructively move forward and proactively engage others when culture wars are pushed to the forefront.
If you somehow managed to not get your fill in regards to blog posts written about the Chick-fil-A situation, you can find some posts below in no particular order that we felt contributed to the discussion in a constructive way.
