How to Navigate Polarization with Jesus at the Centre

Masks, vaccine passports, political ideologies — we’re all experiencing the polarization happening in our culture right now within our families, churches, organizations, and workplaces.

Every few hundred years, there’s a cultural moment that emerges where the church has the opportunity to live and share the Jesus-centred life in a fresh way. We believe that moment is now and that this polarity can actually be an opportunity. How can followers of Jesus lean into these polarizing times with humility and confidence? How can we make peace, model unity, and show secular culture the transformational impact that happens when we put Jesus at the centre?

Join us for a visionary and practical conversation with Dr. Samuel Sarpiya. Samuel is a Jesus Collective Partner and Executive Director at the Center for Non-Violence and Conflict Transformation in Rockford, IL, and he’s an expert in transforming conflict and polarization.

Learning From Marginalized Jesus-Centred Voices Around the World

1 hr 2 min

In the west, the Church cannot afford to be sheltered in privilege and ignore the challenges, victories, and kingdom creativity happening in Jesus-centred communities in the developing world. Putting Jesus at the centre means we must learn from our global and often marginalized brothers and sisters in how they’re putting Jesus at the centre and the ways they’re advancing kingdom creativity. Join us for a fascinating, challenging, and awakening conversation with César Garcia, the General Secretary of Mennonite World Conference (MWC). MWC is a global movement linked to the Radical Reformation, including Anabaptist and Anabapt-ish traditions, with a mission to connect churches around the world for community, learning, and resourcing. César is author of What Is God’s Kingdom and What Does Citizenship Look Like? (Jesus Way: Small Books of Radical Faith) by Herold Press.
