Everyone is impacted by a polarized society, says Bishop Claude Alexander of The Park Church.
Likewise, Alexander said he has seen a “fragmenting within the church.”
Those topics will come together today when Alexander leads a panel discussion at 7 p.m., joined by Russell Moore, editor of “Christianity Today,” and Timothy Dalrymple, the publication’s CEO.
“We must come to terms with this by understanding the forces and factors that underlie the polarization…,” Alexander said in a statement.
The two-hour event will be held at The Park Church, 6029 Beatties Ford Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Bishop Claude Alexander Jr. is the Senior pastor at Park Church for over 20 years.
Russell Moore is the newly appointed editor-in-chief at Christianity today and is an ordained Baptist minister.
