How, in this political season, can Christians and others be so divided? How can some believe that genuine Christianity is about "authority, law and order" and others that it is about "nurturing love"? John Cobb and John Sanders are on the nurturing love side. They believe the God in whom Jesus placed his trust was a God of inclusion, generosity, forgiveness, and empathy. In this hour-long conversation, sponsored by the Cobb Institute, they share their perspectives and discuss their hopes for a nurturant Christianity.
We find ourselves. hoping for, and wanting to work toward, a world of nurturing communities that are good for people, animals, and the earth. A world of beloved communities. How might religious and spiritual leaders help us realize this hope? What visions are needed? What forms of religious experience are needed? How did we get so off track in the first place? We will hear two different voices on this topic and how we can take different paths to arrive at the same destination: Love for our planet.
