The Politics of Forgiveness

The National Press Club

Forgiveness is a Christian virtue. Is it also a political one? To what extent does forgiveness depend on repentance, and upon justice? Some say democracies cannot survive without practicing forgiveness; others that this is too much to expect. Should we resign ourselves to mere toleration, or can forgiveness be approximated in concrete political ways? These are questions at the forefront of American public life, and how we answer them has meaningful implications for our civic leaders.

RSVP to join Baylor in Washington on Wednesday, February 8th at 7:00pm EST for a panel conversation about these questions. This is an in-person event at the National Press Club, and the conversation will be live-streamed as well.

I would absolutely say that F&L has brought a unique display of community and connection to the Hill, along with an invaluable sense of knowledge and experience to young staffers that wouldn’t otherwise be here if it weren’t for F&L.
Hill Staffer
F&L has facilitated my ability to create a network of like minded believers who can serve as a sounding board for ideas and can help move those ideas forward. F&L is not just a place to go hear lectures (and get free food) and learn about an issue; it's also a place to meet people with whom you can work cooperatively toward common goals.
Agency Staffer
On a personal level, I’ve become a more well-rounded believer. I’ve thought through and considered many new ideas and practical ways to serve in my job and at home because of Faith and Law.
