Davenant Discussion: “Finding Unity in the Midst of Political Division: Friendship, Forgiveness, and Repentance”
May 7, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a great time of fellowship and discussion on such an important and pertinent topic to our time. Dr. Nick Higgins will be our guide as we look to the past for wisdom in how to go forward.

How can the ancient concept of friendship, particularly expressed in Aristotle provide a better understanding of political relationships, and how can it bring about the goal of a limited power in the political order? When friendship seems so distant what role does forgiveness and repentance have in the political order, and can our Biblical understanding serve as a model for our political relationship?
