God's vision for mercy is personal, corporate and universal all at once, and his people are expected to reflect it in every dimension of our lives. But living in the US raises serious questions about what it means to be agents of that mercy: Is it biblical to view government as a tool for making the church's mercy felt? And how do we deal with the fact that many of our neighbors—even in the church—might disagree with us about what extending mercy actually looks like?
Center for Christian Civics Executive Director Rick Barry will be addressing these questions in his talk, "Radical Responsibility: Creating a culture of mercy in a representative democracy." The talk will be presented as part of the the 2018 Gospel Coalition Mid-Atlantic Conference in Princeton, NJ.
