Election campaigns are often dominated by just one of two major issues: refugees, taxes, climate change, infrastructure. For Christians, there might be different considerations: the sanctity of life, freedom of religion, foreign aid.
What issues should we be most invested in, as we approach this election? And should we let any of those issues define our vote?
In this episode, we’ll be joined by
- World Vision advocate Tim Costello
- Sojourners founder and ‘God’s Politics’ author Jim Wallis
- Michael Kellahan from Freedom for Faith
- Ruth Powell, director of the National Church Life Survey (NCLS)
- Mike Frost, author, theologian, and head of missiology at Morling College

They’ll challenge our voting habits and help us consider a range of key policy areas that may shape the way we think!
