Church Matters Podcast: Episode 119:
Christians and Politics
Guest: Sarah Thompson, Executive Director, Christian Peacemaker Teams
Christian Peacemaker Teams, founded by Mennonites, has flourished into an ecumenical network seeking to undo oppression of all kinds. Using non-violent means, CPT standings up for oppressed, suppressed, and marginalized people places like Palestine, Colombia, Iraqi Kurdistan, and Indigenous peoples in Canada. However, not all Christians are equally comfortable with the highly political work sometimes required. Some view CPT’s work as an undesirable kind of political interference, while others view it as necessary action. Sarah Thompson shares her insights about the politics of Jesus and the gospels.
