Conversing

As president and ambassador of Fuller Theological Seminary, Mark Labberton takes the occasion of his travels to speak with a broad spectrum of leaders on issues at the heart of the seminary’s mission. It is Fuller's practice to allow conversations with our guests to be uncensored as a gesture of engagement in civil dialogue—a value to which Fuller Theological Seminary is deeply committed. We invite you to listen with hospitality, realizing that guests reflect their own views and not necessarily views in harmony with the stated mission of Fuller.

Today’s complex political climate is an opportunity to reflect on what a distinctly Christian approach to political leadership could look like, says Vincent Bacote. Dr. Bacote reflects with Drs. Labberton and Mouw on the virtue of moral impatience, the importance of active—and hopeful—participation in society, and the opportunity to reimagine what Christian political engagement looks like post-election. For more on political civility, visit https://fullerstudio.fuller.edu/political-civility/

Vincent Bacote is the director of the Center of Applied Christian Ethics and associate professor of theology at Wheaton College. He has written and spoken on topics of Christian ethics, race, and social issues for Fuller in a variety of forms including a lecture at the 40th anniversary of the Pannell Center for African American Church Studies.
