We Australians can be a funny bunch, and when it comes to politics we’re often more interested in the quality of our democracy sausage than the quality of our democracy.
Combine politics with faith and then you’ve really got something combustible. The ultimate no-win, conversation-killing, relationship wrecking social sin.
Over 5 half-hour episodes, we’ll bust open this social phobia.
We’ll talk to with key influencers from all sides of politics, we won’t tell you who to vote for, but we will explore some of the most compelling questions Christians should be thinking about:
- Shouldn’t I just vote for the Christian guy?
- What does it mean to use my vote for others?
- One issue voting
- Civility in conversations and how is social media influencing me?
- Getting engaged after the elections and the role of protest and activism
