How does this video challenge your thinking of ideological language and faith-based communication?
FPL claims to be an organization that claims to be, “… a strategy center advancing faith in the public square as a positive and unifying force for justice, compassion and the common good” (http://www.faithinpubliclife.org/about/).
How is the balance between “unifying rhetoric” in faith life and “unifying actions” by followers of Jesus in our city? Are we doing well? Where should we be doing better?
What do you think about the challenge of the interviewer about a better definition of “faith”? Is unifying rhetoric still essential even if the Evangelical Christian Right is not the one controlling the conversation?
