From Polarization to Peacemaking: How Christians Can Change the Trajectory on Capitol Hill

This session is only for full-time Hill staffers. By invitation only.

In the best of times, Capitol Hill is an open marketplace where visions for governing our diverse and multi-ethnic republic are sorted out and employed for the common good. But these are not the best of times. In this conversation, we’ll learn some of the principles and practices of peacemaking that allow Christians to live as ambassadors of reconciliation and collaborate across lines of difference, even in an age of toxic polarization.

Todd Deatherage spent sixteen years in senior positions in the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. government before co-founding the Telos Group.

He also spent two years as Senior Advisor in the Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom, where he specialized in religious freedom in the Middle East. Todd worked for a decade in the U.S. Congress, including six years as Chief of Staff to Senator Tim Hutchinson. He is a native Arkansan and a graduate of the University of Arkansas.

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
Faith and Law has been an invaluable resource for my professional and spiritual growth. Through Faith and Law's lectures and discussions, I have learned how to apply my faith to thorny policy issues and developed key relational ties with fellow believers on the Hill.
