Our series on Being a Christian in America continues with a discussion about how the church that Ben Sternke and Matt Tebbe co-pastor (The Table in Indianapolis) is speaking about our current cultural moment: by preaching through the Sermon on the Mount, not as pie-in-the-sky idealism or private moral instruction, but as Jesus’ political manifesto.
Mallory Ruark, who is part of the preaching team at The Table (and is part of the Gravity team), joins Ben and Matt for a conversation on what we mean by “political” and how in the Sermon on the Mount Jesus challenged the injustice of his day at a fundamental level.
