Practicing for Heaven (Curt Thompson, Part Three)

The third and final part of our conversation with Dr. Curt Thompson covers what Christian eschatology means for our attempts to deal with political diversity in the church. 

In this Episode
  • Dr. Curt Thompson is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, VA, and the founder of Being Known, an organization that develops resources to educate and train leaders about the intersection between interpersonal neurobiology, Christian spiritual formation, and vocational creativity. He is also the author of Anatomy of the Soul and The Soul of Shame, which explore the intersection of topics at the intersection of Christian spiritual life and contemporary neuroscience.

  • As Executive Director of Center for Christian Civics, Rick helps ministry leaders and faith communities develop missional approaches to their local public squares. He has worked on campaigns for local, state and federal office, is a former writer and editor for Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City and oversaw communications for the Grace DC church network. He and his wife live in Washington, DC.

In the first two parts of our conversation with Dr. Curt Thompson, we discussed why it is important to have “embodied encounters” with our civic systems and our political opponents, and what Good Friday can teach us about dealing with the challenges those encounters present. In this third part of our interview, Dr. Thompson gets into what Christian eschatology means for our attempts to deal with political diversity in the church.

The Christian Civics Podcast explores how the gospel empowers us to think, speak and act differently in the public square.
