An international group of panelists will share their insight into the current wave of Christian Nationalism in the US and Europe, and seek answers to challenging questions from the perspective of their understanding of Christian identity. 

What is Christian and religious nationalism? How do Christian nationalism, conspiracy theories (QAnon), bad theology and bad politics feed off each other and what are the consequences? Why is Christian nationalism, or any kind of nationalism that merges with faith, offensive to the teachings and character of Jesus? What are the threats of Christian nationalism, and where do you see the damaged done by the current wave of Christian or religious nationalism? What is the Gospel’s answer to Christian nationalism? What should followers of Jesus do? How could a proper understanding of our primary identity in Jesus help us overcome Christian or any other nationalism?

Our panelists are: Camilla Bocaniala, Romania, Co-founder of Polylogos Association, a leadership development organization. David Austin, US, Worked in international and humanitarian development, including UN and US Government. Jyl Hall Smith, US, Professor at United Theological Seminary, Ohio Heather Staff, UK, Political Adviser on Refugee and Migration Policy to UK Parliamentarians.
