NJPN Conference Update 22-24 July
‘Getting beyond Optimism to Hope: demonstrating or building the Kingdom in the world of politics?’
Considering the current political disarray, NJPN is fortunate to have, as one of its keynote speakers, Andy Flannagan Executive Director of Christians in Politics.
Andy believes that decisions are made by those who show up, striving to put kingdom before tribe and to disagree well. Christians in Politics draws together Christians from across the political parties and beyond, and from across the breadth of the church. Andy yearns to see a just rewiring of the global economic system. Andy is also author of ‘Those who show up’ (Muddy Pearl, 2015) In the forward Archbishop Justin Welby writes:
“Andy is reaching out, inspiring and equipping us to become engaged with a system that affects us deeply, and through which we in turn can effect radical and transformational change across our society.”
Andy juggles his political work with his career as a singer-songwriter and on Saturday evening Andy will lead a musical evening entitled Songs of Pain, Justice and Hope
