On Sunday, Eric Garbison from Cherith Brook Catholic Worker discussed four distinct kinds of politics.  This is especially helpful as we generally only view politics through the lens of policy and voting.  The four political approaches were partisan & electoral, culture wars, political theology, and emergent tradition. All four engage the world differently and we were able to discuss briefly some of those differences. It was a great night where our goal was to spark the imagination of the church to be political again, not solely by engaging with the state but by also reclaiming its own power to organize around a different set of values that serve as a public witness to the corruption of the empire.  To listen to our discussion, go here!  Please excuse the noise in the audio on this one.  🙂


Here is a PDF of the handout Eric gave to everyone that outlines various ways of viewing politics today.  Faith and Politics Today Outline
