On March 17 at St John Lutheran Church in Champaign Two respected speakers from the church and political arenas will discuss “The Two Kingdoms and the Role of a Christian in the Political Process”. Former Lutheran Hour speaker Reverend Gregory Seltz and Congressman John Shimkus will team up to help citizens discover the challenges and opportunities of being God’s people in the Culture today. Together they will talk about the unique challenges that modern culture and politics are presenting to the church and how God’s people can respond. Reverend Seltz will explain how we as God’s people can respond with a “dynamic voice” that knows how to differentiate what is vital both to the church and the community in their public witness. He will discuss the unique ways that the Bible teaches to engage the issues of the day ultimately for the sake of the Gospel, and also for the sake of the community we serve. Congressman Shimkus as a former Lutheran school teacher and current member of Congress will provide his perspective on the various forces that seem to be raging in culture today.
