Reply To: What is one tangible way that you plan to exhibit Hebraic leadership in your own neighborhood after taking this course?

Emily Cope

One of the big takeaways I got from this course was in the final lesson when it was said that the church is necessary so that Christians can act as a group; that Christianity is a religion that can only be lived out where 2 or 3 or many are gathered in His name. I’ve always been politically engaged, but sometimes it is difficult to navigate where politics and the church ought to overlap. From a Hebraic lens, however, statecraft need not be rejected as too “sinful” or “dirty” for the church to engage with. A tangible way I plan to exhibit Hebraic leadership in my own neighborhood is to live out the pillars of plurality and responsibility as I engage both in the Church (first) and politics (second). I sometimes find it easier to bring Christianity into my politics, but perhaps when I bring politics into my Christian community, I can better explain its purpose as a gift from God.
