Christian Legal Society Models Civil Discourse in “Faith and Politics” Student Panel
On February 17, the Pepperdine Caruso Law chapter of the Christian Legal Society (CLS) hosted a student-led panel to discuss the relationship between the Christian faith and American politics. The panel featured third-year students Bri McDaniel and Zach Carstens, and second-year students Rebecca Voth and Lindsey Kirchoff. CLS President Reed Bartley led the discussion with questions related to our current political climate, biblical values in government, and the individual believer's relationship with politics. Following the panel, participants headed to smaller breakout rooms to continue the conversation and engage further with the panelists.
The event showcased the variety of approaches Christians take when it comes to politics, as well as the power of listening and engaging in respectful dialogue about difficult topics. CLS is committed to sharing stories of faith and encouragement for law students, and regularly hosts events that demonstrate the Christian values of across-the-aisle conversation and true inclusivity.
CLS meets via Zoom each Wednesday evening, and all are welcome. For details, reach out to CLS President Reed Bartley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
