Reconstructing Religious Liberty in a Time of Religious and Secular Extremes
October 20-21, Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church, Southern Adventist University
The NAD Public Affairs and Religious Liberty ministry is excited to announce its upcoming October 20-21 conference “Reconstructing Religious Liberty in a Time of Religious and Secular Extremes.” Hosted by the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church in partnership with Southern Adventist University, this two-day event will explore new ways to talk about religious freedom within a culturally and politically polarized America.
Seventh-day Adventist Christians have long advocated for both strong free exercise protections and a robust separation of church and state. Unfortunately, today’s religious and secular extremes threaten these fundamental values, albeit in very different ways.
A diversity of preliminary speakers and panel discussions will seek to answer the questions:
- How can we effectively engage with those who believe religious freedom is merely a cover for bigotry?
- And, on the other hand, how do we engage with people of faith who increasingly fear cultural marginalization, and who’ve become vulnerable to the appeal of religious nationalism?
